About this Event
Despite the stereotypes, Oxfordshire (and particularly Oxford) is a more diverse place than we may realise. Nonetheless, some groups, such as people from BAME backgrounds, are under-represented amongst charity leadership, and may not benefit from proportionate amounts of funding into their communities. This webinar will explore some of the issues behind this, and look at how infrastructure organisations and funders can make efforts to redress the balance.
