Supporting and investing in inspirational leaders.

ACEVO runs specific programmes to support civil society leaders so they can inspire their own communities and make the biggest possible difference in other people’s lives, from staff to beneficiaries. 

Thursday 12 May 2022 – Thursday 9 March 2023

We recognise that being a CEO is demanding and that sometimes creating the space to gain perspective on complex issues is challenging. ACEVO has therefore teamed up with Gary Buxton to deliver a year of Action Learning.

Monday 26 September – Thursday 15 December 2022

We are passionate about nurturing the sector’s next generation of leaders, so we have put together a programme to help them be at their best in their current roles while also exploring how to progress their careers.

To pay homage to the life and legacy of Jane Slowey, an inspiring CEO who was a voice for women in leadership, these memberships provide expert support, guidance, advice and mentoring for women in their first two years as a CEO for a charity or social enterprise.
