A digital checklist for trustees

69% of respondents to the Charity Digital Skills Report cited their board’s digital skills as low or having room for improvement, while one in three said this lack of understanding or buy-in was holding them back.

Among the expert-led breakout sessions, Ellie Hale, Digital Fellowship and Communties Lead at CAST (Centre for Acceleration of Social Technology) will be leading an interactive workshop session tackling this issue.

“Many trustees don’t understand the value and opportunities of digital for the charities they govern – or the risks that it can present,” said Hale. “The session will help attendees equip their charities to be more confident and resilient at a time of increasing demand for their services.”

Whether that’s embedding digital across their service delivery or “using tried and tested design principles to be more responsive to the changing needs, behaviours, expectations and context of a digital age”, Hale says the session will give action-oriented pointers and examples of charities leading the way.

“Whatever your current experience or understanding of digital, come along for a no-jargon introduction to the key concepts, trends and challenges trustees should consider,” she adds. “Attendees will leave with a list of next-step actions they need to take in order to provide digitally-relevant strategy, scrutiny and support – the foundations of good governance.”
