The need to increase diversity on charity boards is widely acknowledged. Research by the Charity Commission in 2017 found that 7 out of 10 trustees are men and the median age of charity trustees is 61 years.

We know that bringing together trustees with a range of skills, experiences, and perspectives can deliver multiple benefits and a lot of charities have set targets to improve diversity on their boards. But how do you make those targets a reality?

In this webinar, Carla Whalen will look at how charities can take pro-active steps to build more diverse and inclusive boards while also complying with their legal duties under the Equality Act 2010.

Carla will be joined by Janet Thorne, CEO of Reach Volunteering, who will share her experiences of how to successfully recruit for board diversity.
