Racial Diversity Project launched

Acevo and Voice4Change England have launched a racial diversity project, where BAME charity staff will be asked to share their views on how change might be introduced in the sector.

Acevo and Voice4Change England have been awarded £67,000 from the National Lottery Community Fund for the project designed to increase racial diversity in the voluntary sector called Making Diversity Count in the Charity Sector.

Acevo, a network of civil society leaders, and Voice4Change, a national advocate for the BAME voluntary sector, will collaborate on three strands of activity. They will review existing research on diversity in the charity sector, ask BAME charity staff to share their experiences and views through an online survey and interviews, and consider how to bring about change.

Charity leaders, funders, recruiters and regulators are invited to contribute to the initiative on bringing about change. The project will focus particularly on leadership.
