Beyond Suffrage Events

Our Beyond Suffrage events have been developed to support women who are currently serving on boards. If you are new to trusteeship with limited finance and governance experience, we recommend attending one of the sessions after having served as a trustee for at least a year. 

Each session runs for a duration of 1.5hours, with half an hour set aside for networking with other women in the sector.  

Additional events are also available and may be booked through Social Practice ENT.
