The cover theme for this month's issue of Governance & Leadership is the structural racism that pervades the charity sector, and practical ideas for how we might begin to dismantle it. We start with some explanations of what structural racism is and how it manifests in organisations, from the speakers at last month’s Race to the Top event, and follow with insights from Asif Afridi, deputy chief executive of brap, and Dowshan Humzah, director and chair of the UK advisory board at Board Apprentice Global. Our new columnist Elizabeth Balgobin also devotes her first article to the issue of board diversity.
The March edition also contains articles outlining how the international aid sector has upped its game on safeguarding since the scandals of 2018, when (and when not) to report a serious incident to the Charity Commission, and the relationship between the treasurer, the audit function and the board.
