Equal power

In 2017, Charity Commission research showed men outnumbered women trustees on boards by 2 to 1. And most trustees (92%) were white, older and above average income and education.

Closer to home, we know that while roughly 40% of museum Board members are women, they make up less than a third of chairs of major museums. We think it’s time to change that.
