Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
The IoF/Barrow Cadbury Trust survey report, Diversity in the Fundraising Profession, published in 2014, found that there are fewer fundraisers from BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) backgrounds than in the overall sector workforce and that there are more women than men, but concentrated in junior roles. The IoF Strategic Framework 2017-2021 draws on that report in its aim to achieve a more diverse and inclusive workforce and organisation.
We have launched our Manifesto for Change as part of the Change Collective – our movement to make fundraising an equal, diverse and inclusive profession where everyone is the right fit. Read about how we developed the Manifesto.
We have also launched a new benchmarking research project for all fundraising organisations to get involved.
