The numbers on representation keep coming out but they're not changing. "A conversation about data is not enough"

My previous employers are a well known large sexual health charity. They constantly disregarded any form of discrimination, bullying and/or racism. When this was called out, policies created by 'white HR staff and executives' would justify their reasonning.

This is old but popped up in my timeline (thanks ). A vital message especially for charities contemplating . In much “diversity” talk I see a return to the “colourblindness” of the 1990s which was a cop-out then and still is

Received an email today which reminded me how far many of us in the voluntary sector have to go to realise how our biases - unconscious or otherwise - impact others. And that we must do better.

Do you really need a # to wake up? This attitude and trend is historic. Look at yourself Neon and scroll down, you ain't no better. Stop with this woke-twitting.

It had a small number of BAME individuals working within the charity, now it has barerly any. It's shocking that they continue to use PoC for their own PR & marketing-expenses paid only. Protecting their own positions, interests and funding for salaries.

Rumour has it that today's conference has 18 speakers of which only ONE is person of colour and NONE have a visible disability. As a sponsor of the conference - - can you explain why you're supporting this lack of representation?

and "it's not a question of if [racism exists], it's a question of how". Ideological, institutional, interpersonal, internalised. Too often the general discourse thinks only the first or maybe third really 'count'

This particular charity (I worked for) runs exactly like a corporate business-to the world is has a registered charity number! ...for instance it has 6 executives with a combined salary of over 250k... Which charity needs 6? & apparently there's a lack of funding!

I really think we have to consider the quantitative evidence that is coming forward as the tip of a very large iceberg. Many are not coming forward or do not have the space or luxury. Action in the sector urgently needed!

Audience Q: how can our boards be more representative? A: Firstly - what experience do we really need on the board? Limiting the search to certain professions or areas of expertise limits the diversity by default.
