A free 1 hour workshop that will leave you equipped to champion diversity on boards.
About this event
When 1/12 trustees are named either John or David and fewer than 3% of trustees are under 30. It’s no secret that board diversity is an issue.
Join us in changing that. The first step is attending this workshop.
By the end of our 1 hour workshop you will:
- Be able to articulate and understand how young trustees can enable organisations to navigate uncertainty, future proof decisions and reflect the interest of their communities .
- Have a framework to understand how to approach diversity on boards.
- Be able to run a session with a board to plan practical and achievable next steps.
What attendees have said about the training:
- “Excellent training session, bringing together folks from the sector & aspiring young trustees. Something we’re very keen prioritise as we expand our board” – Jon Arnold, CEO of Tiny Tickers
- “Feeling inspired after joining an amazing training”. Ediane de Lima, Consultant at the Social Change Agency
- “I just became a Young Trustees Movement Champion! In this role I pledge to ensuring that young people are represented in the decision making of @S4TP_BigIdeas. I highly recommend the training.” -Jen Baughan, CEO of Solutions for the Planet
Optional extra hour:
There will also be an additional hour after the session where you will have access to a non-judgemental space, where you can talk through challenges, concerns and any other barriers to meaningfully recruiting and inducting young trustees.
