About the Event


The SCVO Trustees Network in partnership with Aberdeen Standard Capital presents a series of good governance webinars where you can hear from experts and share your own learning and experience to ensure a sustainable future for your organisation.

Increasing board diversity is vital as our sector looks to recover and rebuild. Our organisations and our leadership need to be more inclusive and reflective of the communities we serve. Diversity in all its forms drives better decision making, but People of Colour, people with disabilities, and young people are underrepresented on boards.

The average age of a trustee is 57, and fewer than 3% of trustees are aged under 30. This is a risk to the sustainability of the sector and means that boards are missing out on the fresh perspective and range of skills, knowledge and experience young people can offer.

This webinar will look at how to recruit for the future, and why it’s important for young people to be represented on boards. We will explore what the challenges and barriers might be, where you can get support on recruitment and induction, and where you can find young trustees.

Who is this event aimed at?

This session is aimed at trustees of charities and voluntary organisations, and anyone interested in good governance.
