Open Programme
LGBT+ Leadership
Increase your impact with authenticity

In cooperation with

Europe’s first academic programme for LGBT+ talents

The programme combines the international highly recognised leadership expertise of ESCP Europe with the experience of the global LGBT+ leadership contest & community RAHM.

With our partner RAHM we work on LGBT-specific challenges in today’s workplace. This intensive programme will leverage your personal leadership style by exploring the business, team and individual dimensions of leadership. We enable you to develop an authentic approach to leading your employees, while encouraging you to employ novel tools and techniques in dealing with others. With these key elements, you will create a more meaningful impact in your organization and develop strategies on how to leverage the potential of diversity in your work environment.

We encourage the participants of our LGBT+ Leadership programme to think about how they can broaden the type of behaviours they use at work to enable them to become very effective change leaders in their organisations.
