Over the past few years, increasing attention has been drawn to the lack of diversity in the charity and community sector. 68% of the paid workforce is female, yet only 30% of CEO's are women and the pay gap remains at 13.8%. Only 9% of the paid workforce are from black, asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, of which 70% have witnessed or experienced racism and the BAME pay gap is 20%. This interactive zoom workshop will help you consider the concepts and language used and what it means for the sector, it's effectiveness and impact.
Delivered by Dave Forrest MSc who has many years experience of volunteer management and is currently Partnerships Advisor at the Alzheimer's Society. Dave has also helped to establish and manage the first LGBTQI centre in Yorkshire and is a change maker for the mental health movement Time To Change.
