New ACEVO report highlights board diversity is too critical for charities to ignore says Sophie Livingstone, Managing Director, Trustees Unlimited

The annual Pay and Equality Survey of Charity Chief Executives published by ACEVO and sponsored by Russam GMS highlights that board diversity and, especially ethnic diversity, is one of the main concerns for Charity CEOs.

Just 26% of chief executives are satisfied with the ethnic diversity of their board, while 76% are satisfied with the gender diversity.

Sophie Livingstone, Managing Director, Trustees Unlimited says, “We are pleased to see progress is being made in charity leadership, particularly in terms of the gender balance, but diversity covers so much more.
