We are looking for a Chair to implement our new Strategy and drive a programme of innovative and exciting work, to help us shape the Foundation’s future. You will excel at bringing people from different backgrounds together around a common cause. In addition to fostering an excellent relationship with Lloyds Banking Group, you will further enhance our Board to ensure it stays connected with the issues we focus on and that we bring the voices of those we want to reach into our own decision-making. You will care deeply about issues of disadvantage in England and Wales and be able to see what is possible through effective local organisations and empowered communities.
We are committed to actively threading Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) through all aspects of who we are, how we work and what we do and say. We are committed to tackling racial injustice, having committed a minimum of 25% of our funding towards supporting charities led by Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities. An understanding and commitment to EDI, to elevating grassroots and unheard voices, to communities of identity and geography that have too often been marginalised, will be essential for this role.
