We recently spoke to Kerry-Jane, Executive Director of Programmes, Membership and Charitable Services at Parentkind about their experiences of hosting Charity Next secondees.
Last year, we led a bespoke and purpose-built organisational raid for a central Whitehall department and a leading UK law firm, so they could come together, explore each other’s know-how and exchange fresh perspectives on diversity and inclusion.
As we say goodbye to 2021 and move swiftly into another year, we share some of our past highlights, what 2022 has in store for WIG and what you can expect from your membership next year.
As part of UK Charity Week, we’re highlighting the impact the charity sector has on UK society, the unique insights they can provide, which other sectors might find difficult to obtain and the importance of cross-sector collaboration to drive change.
After a two-year absence, we were delighted to host our Annual Interview in person. We draw our top insights gained from the evening.
