Leadership 20:20 Panel gets under way

Governance | Vibeka Mair | 8 Jun 2012

The Leadership 20:20 Panel has announced its implementation plan, including a network to address the lack of diversity amongst sector leaders, and a framework which recommends that civil society workforce completes 40 hours of personal and professional development a year.

The Leadership 20:20 Panel, chaired by Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE (pictured), is made up of a group of sector bodies including NCVO and Acevo, each leading on implementing one of the Leadership 20:20 Commission’s five recommendations to develop leaders in the charity sector.

Skills-Third Sector will be leading on creating a sector-wide development framework. The framework will include a directory of mentors, collaboration between leadership development programmes, and an expectation that the civil society workforce completes 40 hours of personal and professional development a year.

Acevo will be coordinating a network of organisations to address the lack of diversity amongst sector leaders, while the Chartered Management Institute will work on encouraging the mobility of civil leaders across sectors.

NCVO, in addition to providing the secretariat to the Panel, will lead on enabling infrastructure bodies to coordinate networks of emerging leaders to shape the response to future challenges.

The Panel will be holding further discussions on the appointment of an organisation to lead on the Commission’s fourth recommendation, which called for funders and commissioners to promote sustainability by incorporating management and leadership development into funding agreements.

Richard Doughty, who chaired the Leadership 20:20 Commission, said:
  “The recommendations we made are mutually inclusive. You cannot effectively address future challenges without having well developed leaders, and you cannot build a culture of development without participation from our sector’s stakeholders, including those who fund projects and services. We will be looking at how best to support funders and commissioners to meet the sustainability challenge through their work with civil society organisations.”

The Panel will meet again in September to discuss the organisations plans for implementation.
