The Festival of Trusteeship 2022 is returning with a bang!


It’s a week-long online series of events, during Trustees Week, stuffed with exciting options for people who want to become trustees, trustees who want to keep learning and developing, and for charity leaders who want to understand best practice in trustee recruitment and diversity.

We have a whopping four sessions daily every day for five days, with a mix of webinars, clinics and panel discussions about the topics that matter to trusteeship today.  


Four different content strands will cover all aspects of trusteeship: Aspiring Trustees, Trustee Recruitment, Good Governance and Thought Leadership. 


We've drawn the session themes from the recurring issues, challenges, news stories and conversations that we've explored in our recent work.


Session preview

  • Workshop: Is my board mediocre? 

  • Panel: Smashing the cut glass ceiling: is being working class a barrier to trusteeship?

  • Webinar: What is a trustee and how do I become one?

  • Panel: Life well lived: how does lived experience enrich a boardroom?

  • Clinic: Get feedback on recruitment materials

All of this was made possible by our brilliant sponsors Ecclesiastical Insurance. Thanks to their generosity we're able to make the festival as affordable as possible.
