The 2020 edition of our Pay and Equalities Survey is now available to purchase. The survey is the most comprehensive breakdown of the sector’s CEO remuneration packages available. The report examines chief executive salaries, benefits and job satisfaction in detail. It also explores the level of equality and diversity in our sector’s leadership, and satisfaction levels in the make-up and performance of boards.

The ACEVO podcast is back, and in this new episode, Vicky speaks with Adeela Warley, CEO of CharityComms, the membership body for communications professionals in the charity sector. Adeela talks about why civil society leaders should listen to their comms colleagues, the positives and challenges of creating a collaborative campaign and why things should not go back to business as usual when we get out of the other side of the pandemic. You can find the episode, including transcription, here

2020 has seen unprecedented change and impact on the world in which we all operate. Business plans need to be reviewed, if not thrown out and started again.
