About this event

The charity sector supports a diverse range of communities, people and causes. But this diversity is not reflected in the sector’s trustees. Recently, there has been a lot of highlevel debate about the need to improve diversity and inclusion in the sector’s workforce. Sector leaders have been making the moral, and business and impact cases for why charities need to step up and improve who they involve, and how they involve them, at all levels of an organisationSo what does this mean for trustees and the boards on which they sit?

This free seminar, run in partnership with the Clothworkers’ Company, will explore:

  • What good looks like in terms of diversity and inclusion
  • How the sector has evolved its practices; what charities are doing well and what remains to be done
  • The moral, and business and impact cases for improving diversity
  • The implications for charity boards and their recruitment processes
  • Practical examples of how charities are working to improve their diversity and inclusion practices

  • Arvinda Gohil, Interim Chief Executive of Arhag Association Limited and Chair of the Peel Institute

  • Jo Wells, Director of The Blagrave Trust and Trustee of Essex Community Foundation.
