Breakfast Briefing: What is the risk of poor diversity among charity trustees?
Our next Breakfast Briefing is with Jake Hayman, CEO of Ten Years’ Time and colleague Eli Manderson-Evans, who will lead a discussion on the recruitment challenge which charities face to improve diversity in senior positions.
Charities are often criticised for their poor board diversity which compares unfavourably to the private sector. A 2018 research study of the top 500 charities found that 80% of senior leadership teams lacked any ethnic minority professionals, while 62% of the charities had all-white boards. The report also found that, among trustees, only 34% were female and only 2.9% were women of colour.
Join us to discuss the importance of diversity in senior teams and the risk to the credibility of the sector, should matters not improve.
