What’s in January’s issue of Governance & Leadership?

16 Jan 2024 Voices

The cover theme of January’s Governance & Leadership is the Charity Governance Code.  We lead with some research by RSM examining how larger charities are applying the Code in their governance, as well as how they are reporting their use of the Code in their annual reports.  We also feature two case studies from charities that have used the Code to good effect – the Canal & River Trust, and National Childrens’ Bureau – and carry an update on next steps for Code from the chair of its steering group.

In the People & Culture section, Association of Chairs chair Joe Saxton ponders why so many charities are struggling with the diversity and inclusion agenda when the sector is built on a desire for a more equal and equitable world, and he offers some practical tips to help organisations in their journey.

In Law & Guidance, the Charity Commission explains why it is taking high street banks to task over their treatment of charities, and in Strategy & Operations, advertising expert Harriet Kingaby offers some tips for climate campaigners in the run-up to the general election.

In Core Functions, the theme of which is IT and data, Parkinson’s UK outlines how AI has helped its fundraising team to boost returns on direct mail campaigns.
