Roundtable Discussion – 24th September 12.30pm – 1.45pm @ Tyndallwoods, 29 Woodbourne Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B17 8BY.
There has been a lot of high level debate in the sector about the need to improve the diversity of the charity sector governance and workforce in recent months. There is a moral case for improving equality, diversity and inclusion, and there is clear evidence for the business and impact case too. But diversity alone is not enough; the charity sector needs to go further, but what are the challenges that face the sector in making it a priority?
What does it means to have true diversity on a board of trustees? what can a diverse board and workforce do for an organisation? And do you maintain diversity on boards?
Asif Afridi, Deputy Director, Brap (tbc) – Equality and Human Rights organisation based in Birmingham will facilitate a discussion at the next roundtable meeting. We will look at the question of diversity, equality and inclusion from a funders’ perspective in how their own organisation addresses the challenges of diversity and equality its governance and workforce, and how it considers equality and diversity in its grant making approach.
