A set of recommendations to strengthen the governance of the GT in relation to diversity and inclusivity focusing on:
The delivery of two diversity training sessions either remotely or in person for GT Trustees, committee members, staff and key volunteers.
The governance and diversity consultant will prepare and deliver a Board workshop which will:
Work with the Board to identify how the new thinking can be integrated into organisational process and strategy.
Work with the Chair of the Board to develop a set of proposals to strengthen the Board and committee structures.
Work with the Board, project steering group and Audience Development Marketing and Communications Group to identify training and development needs across Trustees, staff and key volunteers in relation to diversity and inclusion.

Make suggestions on the best way to evaluate the effectiveness of the diversity training to inform future training delivery.
