“The Human Rights Leadership Lab combines reading, sharing, self reflection, and group discussion to deliver a course that has equipped me with new knowledge and skills to apply in my work. The course content was thought provoking and also practical. Participating in The Human Rights Leadership Lab has validated some of my experiences working in human rights over the past decade. That combination - feeling validated and equipped with new knowledge and skills - is incredibly empowering! The Human Rights Leadership Lab is THE leadership course for human rights professionals!"
The Human Rights Leadership Lab is a supportive and reflective learning space to develop your leadership presence, skills and impact. It is the first ever leadership development training specifically designed to meet the needs of activists and leaders and managers working for human rights organisations. You will gain practical tools to take your leadership to the next level, placing your core human rights values at the heart of your approach.
The Human Rights Leadership Lab commences with an examination of it's core philosophy - a human rights values-based approach to leadership. We then turn to examine human rights organisational culture, different leadership styles and competencies and how to motivate and inspire people using an empowering coaching approach. The final part of the Human Rights Leadership Lab focuses on how to build healthier and more sustainable working environments and prevent, mitigate and respond to stress, burn out and vicarious trauma through self-leadership and collective care strategies. You will acquire new leadership strategies, skills and tools and be empowered to lead more mindfully and do more impactful human rights work.
All participants who successfully complete the course will receive a University of Essex, Human Rights Centre certificate.
The design of the course requires limiting enrolment to a maximum of 11 participants.
“The Lab fills what is best described as a looming gap between being a manager and a leader. It helped me understand my innate leadership style and identify areas of growth. It has been an incredible journey with an incredible instructor!”
