We Move: Race Equality & Migrants Rights Summit – 2-4 September 2022

Organised by the Runnymede Trust, this in-person event in Leeds will bring together academics, corporations, policymakers, trade unionists, civil society, journalists, students and the general public to explore how we harness the opportunities for positive change, address the threats to, and maintain the recent momentum for, racial equality.

Chief Exec’s update – August 2022

In July, Cumbria CVS was invited to be part of the recruitment exercise for the new CEO for Westmorland with Furness (WwF) Shadow Authority.

This was a really interesting exercise on several counts: getting to meet prospective candidates and discuss their approach to partnership working and future interaction with the VCFSE sector; being involved in a discursive, discussion-based recruitment process based on how we assessed candidates’ ability to work in meaningful partnership with multiple partners; and to work with a fascinating group of colleagues who were also on the panel. I always feel it is an enormous privilege to be invited to sit on the “other side” of the table to the candidates, and on this occasion in particular, it didn’t disappoint.
