'Shamefully small' number of BAME charity leaders, finds Acevo survey


The charity sector has failed to significantly increase the proportion of chief executives coming from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, according to Acevo’s latest Pay and Equalities survey. Some 95 per cent of chief executives that responded to the umbrella body's 2018 survey were from white backgrounds. Although this was a slight dip from the 97 per cent received in the 2017 survey, the figure is similar to when Acevo first published ethnicity data in 2008. Back then, 4.2 per cent of respondents reported being from a BAME background. The data was drawn from the contributions of 540 third sector chief executives last year. This was up from 473 responses in the previous year's survey. The report was produced in association with the Charities Aid Foundation and supported by ACOSVO in Scotland and C03 in Northern Ireland.
