About this event

A diverse board: What does true diversity mean, what can it do for your organisation, and how do you achieve it?

The results of NPC’s survey, published in Charities taking charge, show that only 7% of charity leaders said they thought that diversity at board level was not particularly important or brought no particular benefits.

Different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences can add considerable value to board discussions and the strategic decisions they make. Diverse boards are more likely to engage in debate and challenge one another—and ultimately make better decisions for their organisations.

But diversity on boards is not achieved through a one-off solution, and is not just a tick box exercise. Boards need to proactively step outside their members’ social and business circles when sourcing new candidates—and work hard to engage, nurture and retain a diverse set of trustees once they are on board.

This seminar run in partnership with The Clothworker’s Company, will:

  • Examine what it means to have true diversity on a board of trustees;
  • Explore what a diverse board can do for your organisation;
  • Offer some ideas on how you can increase and maintain diversity on your Board.
