Event description
Unlocking better financial and risk management through Young Trustees.

About this event

- Why is board age diversity a priority for foundations & funding organisations in 2021?

- How do Young Trustees enable organisations to remain relevant, make future-proofed decisions and reflect their communities?

- What is the risk of nothing changing?

In this one hour webinar you will:

  • Hear first hand from Young Trustees, how older board members have welcomed their contributions and how the organisation they serve have benefited from them.
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions (including anonymous questions) to people leading change in this space.
  • Explore how you can take practical action to create meaningful change in your boardroom and lead change across the sector.
