Sign the Equality Action Pledge

Research shows that BME and women trustees are significantly underrepresented in charity boardrooms. In response to this research and #CharitySoWhite, GCVS and CRER have launched an Equality Action Pledge to help third sector organisations take tangible steps towards tackling discrimination and under representation as part of Trustees’ Week 2019.

We ask organisations to formally acknowledge that the lack of diversity in the voluntary sector is a serious issue that requires action. We ask that they commit to tackling discrimination and underrepresentation within their organisation.
