Board Diversity

Having a diverse board that is composed of people with a range of different ethnicities, ages, genders, abilities, social class and backgrounds will strengthen your board. 


Evidence has indicated that companies with diverse management teams outperform their peers. 


Getting on Board offers a suite of affordable services to guide charities through the process, help them assess their needs and train existing trustees on how to recruit and retain diverse trustees.

Webinars: Trustee Learning Programme

Our free monthly webinars can help you develop a robust open recruitment strategy that will help your charity attract the best candidates for the role, not just the ones who are nearest or available to you.

The webinars are also about trustees' continuous learning and development. Expert trainers and facilitators give you the skills to be confident in charity board finance, how to be and excellent trainer and much more.
