Event description

Description

Join us for the next Leeds Charity Social with IoF Yorkshire. It's an opportunity for anyone involved in the charity sector to listen to superb speakers, pick up tips and share experiences with each other in a relaxed informal setting!

This event is open to anyone. Join us with your whole team, or just come and introduce yourself. Most of us fly solo so there are plenty of friendly faces.

You'll meet other charity professionals here in Yorkshire, from a variety of different charities and make long lasting connections. Whether you've been in the sector for 20 years or 2 days there are always things to learn from each other or things that people can learn from you. As well as picking up or sharing hints, tips and advice you'll get a non physical group hug feeling (better descriptions welcome!), with so many like minded people in one place!

The Running Order:

5pm - Arrival at the Hotel, our room will be signposted in reception

5:15pm - Susie Green, CEO of Mermaids, a nationwide charity that supports transgender and gender nonconforming children, young people and their families. Susie has been a parent, then a trustee, then Chair before becoming the first paid member of staff in January 2016 as CEO. Mermaids stands at the forefront of the civil liberties issue of our times, and as a visible trans ally and parent of a trans daughter, Susie is determined to change the landscape for trans rights.

Susie will talk about her personal journey and the most recent developments for the charity.

5:35pm - Tim Nelson is the International Development Director for Hope for Justice. Tim is one of the co-founders of Hope for Justice and sat on the founding board of Hope for Justice.

Tim will be sharing about the work of Hope for Justice and how to make a bigger impact across the world.

6pm - Move into the bar area for optional socialising (stay for as long as you like!)

Join us to meet other charity professionals in Leeds and Yorkshire in a relaxed and informal setting. This event is FREE but please make sure that you RSVP on Eventbrite so that we can get an idea of attendance numbers.
