This month we spoke to four people about how they plan to rebuild back from the experiences of 2020, including a Trustee helping implement an Equality Action Plan for their organisation and a Charity Leader developing an app for children with congenital heart disease (CHD) and their parents to use in hospital.
During 2020, we were delighted to feature a Trustee each month as part of our ‘Pick of the Month’, a publication highlighting the extraordinary people working across the charity sector. In the last year, the Trustees featured have supported charities across impact areas, from social care and cancer research, to publishing and youth leadership.
So what can we learn from these case studies of trusteeship, and how can they can inform governance practice going forwards?
The Institute of Fundraising’s latest report ‘Missing Out: Understanding the female leadership gap in fundraising’ provides detail on how gender is affecting the ability of women to reach the top jobs.
