The Manchester Systems Change Leadership project aims to increase the capacity and capability of Black and Minoritised community organisations in Manchester, to engage in and eventually lead systems change initiatives.
The project will create spaces for dialogue to explore severe and multiple disadvantages affecting Black and Minoritised community in Manchester. The participants will learn about systems change strategies and models to understand better systemic issues they’re facing and create transformational change.
Our approach is underpinned by the active pursuit of social justice and equality. This includes the use of Dialogue Interviews, Learning Journeys, Storytelling, Systems Mapping, Appreciative Leadership, Open Space, World Café and a space for retreats.
It will be the first such lab in the UK and will make a significant contribution to Lankelly Chase's place-based investment in Manchester. This project will be a major intervention, the learning from which will be shared with local, regional and national stakeholders.
