Topic: Workplace bullying in charities and implications for leadership

Speaker: Sarah Hughes, chief executive, Centre for Mental Health

On 10 June, the research report In Plain Sight was launched by ACEVO and Centre for Mental Health on bullying in the charity sector and its implications for leadership.  

While many charities are happy, safe, inspiring places to work, the report shows that not only does bullying happen - and sometimes in plain sight - but that the impact it has on those affected is huge. It draws upon the voices of victims of bullying in charities to describe the conditions in which it occurs and might persist and to provide analysis and recommendations for what charity leaders should do to create safer working cultures. It concludes with six practical recommendations in the areas of governance and leadership, policies and processes, and the regulatory environment. 

Join us on 12 September and hear Centre for Mental Health CEO Sarah Hughes talk about the research results, its recommendations and the importance of working together to find solutions to deal with and tackle the issue.
