Change Collective Report 2019: Who Isn't In the Room?
A new report from the Institute of Fundraising, “Change Collective: Who Isn't in the Room”, sets a benchmark of equality, diversity and inclusion in the fundraising profession.
The research, based on a survey of over 400 fundraising charities of different sizes, explores the make-up of fundraising teams, and the organisational practices that might be holding us back or succeeding in reducing the barriers for fundraisers.
As one of the early commitments in our Manifesto for Change, this will underpin our long-term EDI strategy by helping us track progress, better understand the barriers that exist in our profession, and work out what we, and our members, can do to work towards a more inclusive and diverse fundraising community.
SUFINA AHMAD, CHAIR OF IoF’S EXPERT ADVISORY PANEL ON EQUALITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
“To have in one place equality, diversity and inclusion data on 6,912 fundraisers from across the UK is an incredible achievement. It gives us much needed clarity on the make-up of the fundraising profession, which will help us better target the work of the Change Collective – our movement to ensure the fundraising profession is more equal, diverse and inclusive and a profession where everyone is the right fit.”
