A report from the UK’s Charity Commission has recently found that trustees of charities are 92% white, averagely aged 60-62 years old and 64% male. This skews further with large charities.
Positively, 92% of trustees are volunteers, 51% are retired and 90% have a postgraduate or professional qualification. There is no doubt that there is lots of experience and skills leading our charities.
However, as charities continue to battle for funds and engagement with a changing customer landscape, we at Transformus we see a huge opportunity to complement this skill set with more diverse and innovative thinking. For the good of both the charity and it’s beneficiaries.
If you are a charity who would like to diversify and enhance your leadership, please reach out to Transformus.
