Everyone involved in governance can contribute to increasing the diversity of characteristics and thought around the board table while ensuring volunteers feel included and valued in their role. NGA’s new report on increasing participation in school and trust governance, and the accompanying launch event, offers insight and solutions.
“What we need is clear practical steps on how schools and those governing can be more proactive rather than reactive. Each governing board can identify just three actions per term or per academic year that they can measure themselves against. There is a challenge to all organisations to be the change they wish to see.”
