Green Park’s Leadership 2,000 – an analysis of the ethno-cultural and gender diversity of Major UK Charities senior leadership teams, finds that 34 of the 100 largest UK charities, categorised by turnover, have all white senior leadership teams.
The analysis highlights that the largest charitable institutions have incredibly limited ethno-cultural representation at the highest levels of management, with 92% of the senior leadership teams being white. 8.1% of senior positions in Major UK Charities are held by ethnic minority leaders, which drops to 6.2 in the Top 3 positions of Chair, CEO and CFO.
