One in 12 trustees are named either John or David.
Fewer than 3% of trustees are under 30.
It’s no secret that board diversity is an issue.
WHO SHOULD COME AND WHAT WOULD THEY GET OUT OF IT:
The session is aimed at current charity boards, CEOs, young people and connectors.
Current charity boards and CEOs:
- Explore how your board can benefit from more diversity of thought, greater effectiveness and future-proofing.
- Discover how to become a young trustee, how you can reap the benefits of young trusteeship and shape the Young Trustees Movement.
Connectors (people who work with boards and young people):
- From recruiters to administrators, if you work or volunteer in the charity sector explore your role in accelerating change.
This session is run by The Young Trustees Movement. The Young Trustees Movement is made up of young people and charity leaders who are mobilising for better charity boards. They aim to double the number of trustees aged 30 and under on charity boards by 2024 and support board cultures that enable for diversity of perspective. While the spotlight is on the age factor, their movement is part of a wider call for diversity on boards.
