Campbell Tickell and Trowers & Hamlins are pleased to invite you to a joint event looking at excellence in charity governance. This is the second event in the series.
The excellence in charity governance series is intended to act as a facilitated discussion for Company Secretaries and Heads of Governance within the charitable sector, to share current thinking and to provide a safe space for discussing common challenges with like-minded peers.
The topics and format of the sessions are shaped by your feedback. Based on your feedback, the topic for the second event will be:
Board diversity and workplace changes
The workplace is a constantly evolving environment, adapting to reflect changes in people, culture and more recently the impact of events such as Covid-19 on the workforce.
It is critically important to ensure that the governance within a charity and the workplace environment keeps pace with societal changes. Clearly lockdown has had a profound effect on working practices. Even once we move back to 'normality' charities may find that their employee expectations around digital working have changed. Charities need to be considering the longer term, post-Covid landscape and how they will take advantage of the opportunities and deal with the challenges arising out of it.
The Black Lives Matter movement has prompted organisations to reflect on their diversity at all levels, including the Board, and to put in place concrete actions to change for the better. A refreshed Charity Governance Code, which has recently been published, will strengthen the principle around diversity and add to the impetus to embed diversity, equality and inclusion at the highest level.
