Co-option to the NGA’s Board of Trustees – Improving our diversity

Governing NGA as a trustee is engaging, challenging, and enjoyable. We have seen a sustained period of rapid growth in an arena of constant and seemingly endless change: our board comprises a talented mix of experienced school governors/trustees who bring to the table a wide range of valued business, education and charitable sector skills and knowledge.

But in common with many governing boards in schools and across the wider charity sector, NGA’s Board currently lacks diversity.  NGA recognises that a more diverse range of trustees can help to: ensure a charity is fair and open in all its dealing, increase public confidence and accountability and can help strengthen decision-making by boards considering issues from more perspectives.

Consequently, to increase the diversity of our trustee board, NGA is particularly seeking candidates from black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.
