About this Event

Achieving and Retaining a Diverse Board draws on the experience and expertise of key sector professionals to create a bespoke and stimulating day of ideas and strategies to skilfully navigate and champion the diversity agenda.

“It has been inspirational, with some very practical elements that I can put into practice back in my organisation.” 2019 participant

There is much evidence to show that a diverse Board makes for a better Board. The programme will include ‘surgeries’ with keynote speakers, opportunities for peer learning and shared examples of best practice, ensuring that attendees will be actively supported to develop targeted and strategic responses to this critical area of Board performance.


Who is it for?

Trustees (especially those with responsibility to act as champions for diversity) and senior executives working with the Boards of arts and cultural organisations. We are particularly keen to ensure that we are supporting Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisations.

The deadline to book is Friday 24 January 2020.

Programme Leaders:

Clore Leadership Governance Associate Prue Skene CBE will be running this day.
