Vision, mission, values

Our vision: for civil society leaders to make the biggest possible difference.

Our mission: together with our network we inspire and support civil society leaders through connection, skills and influence.

Our values:


We involve our members and include them in our thinking. We are driven by their needs and their potential to achieve change.


We achieve more through bringing people together, building the relationships and networks that generate confidence and belief.


We promote a culture that celebrates our differences and where everyone is heard, respected and valued. We aim to create a space that is safe and welcoming.


We are bold, confident, energetic and vibrant. We are both agile and entrepreneurial in leading and supporting our members in the challenges ahead. 


We always act with integrity and in the best interests of our members. We do what we say we will do and are open about both our objectives and our impact.

Our strapline: imagine, inspire, improve

Effective leaders are driven by imagining a better, brighter, more equal world. Through their vision they inspire others. And together with their teams and peers they deliver impact – improving lives, our society and their own performance.
