The Black Nurses Leadership Institute launched in May 2022 to provide a community-driven and leadership training program for nurses and nursing students who identify as Black and/or of African descent (Black Nurses Leadership Institute 2022). The aim of the program is to acknowledge and address the presence of a "black ceiling" that can often challenge and impede professional advancement for Black nurses in traditionally white-dominated healthcare leadership systems (Erskine et al. 2021; McGirt 2017). This collaborative experience creates a sense of belonging and offers a welcome space for learning among like-minded individuals with shared experiences.
