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