Charity Summit 2021

Improving charities governance to build better communities

15-16 September 2021

The impact of the last 18 months has forced the dynamics of the third sector to adapt to challenges such as funding, tackling climate change, and responding to deepening inequalities around the world. Consequently, guidance, regulations, culture and values are evolving and therefore, governance professionals’ responsibilities are now shifting. These transformations need to be acknowledged, understood, and addressed in the boardroom.

Join the Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland’s annual summit to be part of forward thinking conversations and access the latest information from our experts. Gather the tools needed to expand your knowledge and the skills required to develop a board fit for this new era.

Our agenda is packed with inspiring discussions, debates, interviews, case studies, workshops and networking.
