The Supporting Inclusive Boards programme will convene governance professionals in a series of developmental, online sessions to enhance and share thinking, noting the importance of the role of the governance professional in implementing change.
Participants will be invited to join an online community and four virtual workshops.
Using Advance HE’s Board Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit as a guide, the community will work through this theme including, preparing the board and creative solutions to generating diverse board candidates, to successful recruitment, induction and retention.
