The Leadership Academy is delighted to announce its new partnership with Boardmatch Ireland!
Boardmatch Ireland is the Irish charity that specialises in not-for-profit board recruitment. They connect individuals who are interested in volunteering their skills with organisations that have board vacancies.
Together we are launching a pilot programme to introduce new voices to Irish Charity Boards through a Board Placement Programme
The Future Board Leaders Programme (pilot 2023) will focus on increasing the engagement of traditionally underrepresented voices on boards. As well as actively recruiting and supporting these voices, we will be actively working with the associated charities to support building their trustee diversity in a supported way.
Boardmatch will use their extensive network and expertise to identify a number of suitable organisations looking to make real change to their organisations through diversifying their boards.
The Leadership Academy will begin recruiting people interested in joining a Board as a charity trustee.
We also have a limited number of places for emerging leaders of underrepresented voices who may have recently joined a board, who would like to learn more or develop a support network at the early stage of their trustee career.
We will connect interested boards with candidates and when we successful match a Board and candidate, those participants will join the board and attend our co-designed training programme.
Please note only participants who are successfully matched with a Board will be eligible to attend the programme.
If you fill even one of these criteria, please apply. DO NOT DISQUALIFY YOURSELF. Apply and let the process decide.
