Trustee Diversity | Getting on Board
Wednesday 25th November @ 12:00 am - 2:00 pmfree
Free online training on diversifying your trustee board
Join national trustee recruitment and diversity charity, Getting on Board, for a practical workshop about how charities can diversify their trustee boards.
Only one third of trustees are women, 8% are people of colour and one third are under 50. 59% of charities report that their board does not reflect the communities they serve. And 74% of charities struggle to find the trustees they need.
Why is this? What could improved board diversity do for charities? What are the tried and tested practical actions you can take to recruit and retain diverse trustees?
The session is particularly aimed at trustees, staff or volunteers of small to medium-sized charities.
