It is very easy to go back to the same tried-and-tested speakers for your conferences time and again. But more often than not, these speakers are white men and the perspectives we hear are limited – we miss out on a huge range of knowledge and experience.
Now more than ever we need to amplify the voices of the incredible women in our sector and give a platform to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic speakers, who remain hugely under-represented in charity and fundraising.
This site offers a resource for you to find a more diverse range of speakers. We’ve done as much of the work as possible to provide you with everything you need, and if you’d like to chat about the list you can find us on Twitter at @CharityEquality.
“Too many times I am told that it is hard to find good speakers in the charity sector who aren’t male and/or white. So this site contains a list. It’s not perfect, but it’s a start”.Mandy Johnson, Founder of GreatCharitySpeakers.com
