WEBINAR: How good is your organisation’s governance?
Tuesday, 15th October 2019
Topic: Charity good governance
Date: Wednesday 15 October
Who is it for: This webinar will be useful for charity trustees/board members, as well as CEOs and staff members involved in organisational governance.
Speaker: Tracey Bird, Information Officer (Public Affairs), SCVO
Why you should attend:
Governance is about leadership and the work of the trustees to ensure an organisation is effectively and properly run. But, how do you know if the governance of your organisation is good?
We know that governing a charity operating internationally from Scotland can be both rewarding and challenging. Risks need to be mapped for the Scottish context as well as for in-country projects and programmes. The sector is under increasing scrutiny to be transparent about its use of funds and driven to continually improve its approach to safeguarding. Moreover, there is still progress to be made around diversity, inclusion and pay across the sector.
SCVO have recently created a Good Governance check-up to help charities in Scotland assess five components of good governance. It is designed to work alongside the Scottish Governance Code for the Third Sector.
During this short lunch-time webinar, we will hear from SCVO about how you can use their new check-up to practically improve the purpose, leadership, board behaviour, control and effectiveness of your organisation.
