Third Sector Podcast: Sarah Vibert

Rebecca chats to the new permanent chief executive of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations

Third Sector Podcast

This week, Third Sector's features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney and editor Emily Burt talk to Sarah Vibert, the new-appointed chief executive of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Vibert, who joined the NCVO in January 2020, was appointed as permanent chief executive of the NCVO earlier this month after leading the organisation on an interim basis since January 2021.

Her predecessor Karl Wilding stepped down after just 18 months as chief executive and 23 years at the infrastructure body. 

The following month, a damning internal equality, diversity and inclusion report, compiled by external consultants in 2020, surfaced.

The report found evidence of “bullying and harassment” on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation and disability happening “with impunity” at all levels of the organisation, leaving members of minority groups there feeling “unsafe at work”.

In this week's interview, Vibert discusses how she plans to move the organisation forward.

This week's Good News Bulletin features English Heritage's response to the behaviour of its corporate partner P&O Ferries and the success of the Disasters Emergency Committee's appeal for Ukraine.
