About us

Left arc of Inclusive Board Logo

A Little History

 Inclusive Boards  began  its  work  in the  third  sector, supporting some of the UK’s largest charities including Amnesty International, Big Lottery, British Red Cross and the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) with efforts to improve board diversity and develop stronger governance structures. 

Today we have a diverse talent pool of over 60,000 professionals and a reach that expands into sectors and communities across the UK. We have worked with over 150 organisations on board and executive appointments in the STEM, sport, not-for-profit and public sectors.

Evidence shows that in order to ensure diversity of thought and experience is present during decision making processes , it’s imperative that there’s a diverse leadership team. Whether you’re just starting to think about inclusion, or you hold mandatory D&I training every year – Inclusive Boards can support and strengthen diversity and inclusion within your organisation.
