Culture at a Crossroads? Prisons coming out of COVID-19?

About this event

For some years the prison service has been working on its culture – a positive culture for staff, and a rehabilitative culture for those in prison. This day of lectures is a chance to ask how this quest is progressing, in the face of the challenges that are all around.

Managing the risks of COVID-19 has been a massive challenge, that demanded centralised guidance and control. As we transition back to the ‘new normal’, how will we balance control, accountability and autonomy, for prison governors, prison staff and prisoners themselves?

Organisations with a healthy culture encourage innovation and accept that at times things may go wrong. Often it seems that avoiding risks and averting criticism are the priority. What progress in the quest for a learning culture?

The culture of an organisation relies heavily on good leadership, excellent communications of its aims and a shared understanding of those aims. How far is visionary and brave leadership being cultivated at all levels of the service?

Is it still possible to achieve a rehabilitative culture, or is it just another slogan on the shelf?
