“The Human Rights Leadership Lab was of tremendous help at a critical moment for me, transitioning to a leadership role during the pandemic. The Lab helped me to learn and utilise various leadership styles and practices built upon human rights principles, integrity and empathy and ensuring team resilience and wellbeing. The coaching process integrated into the Lab enables valuable introspection and the opportunity to build yourself.”
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 10 participants.
“Taking part in the Human Rights Leadership Lab has been instrumental in supporting my professional growth to become a stronger leader in the field of human rights. Having a human rights valued-based approach as the core methodology spoke to the relevant and practical realities that my team and I face on a day to day level.”
