Third Sector Podcast #9: #CharitySoWhite

In the latest Third Sector Podcast, we cover racism and representation in the sector, charity leader bonuses and the Tower of London's Choose Your Own Adventure Twitter campaign

Our latest podcast hosts the founders of the #CharitySoWhite campaign to discuss the challenges of race and representation in the voluntary sector.

Deputy editor Emily Burt and features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney speak to Fatima Iftikhar and Henna Shah, who sparked the #CharitySoWhite conversation after a social media row about "horribly racist" Citizens Advice training guidance.

They discuss the challenges of institutional racism, the experiences of people of colour working in the charity sector and the practical steps charity leaders can take to tackle poor diversity and inclusion.

Rebecca also talks to the former Beating Bowel Cancer chief executive Mark Flannagan to ask whether it is ever acceptable for a charity chief executive to receive a bonus, in light of the controversial £434,500 package received by the chief executive of Marie Stopes International.

And Oliver Frost, digital media officer at Historic Royal Palaces, joins us to discuss its popular Choose Your Own Adventure-style Twitter thread, which challenged people to escape the Tower of London.
