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. 

26 February – 5 June 2024

We are passionate about nurturing new and emerging leaders and have put together a programme to help explore how they can be at their best in their current role and also progress their career.

9 May – 10 October 2024

ACEVO has partnered with Gary Buxton to deliver six months of action learning with your CEO peers. Action learning sets provide a space for charity CEOs to gather together every month to explore the issues they are currently navigating. 

To pay homage to Jane Slowey, an inspiring charity CEO who was a powerful advocate for women in leadership, ACEVO memberships are provided for eight under-represented women leading a charity.

9 September – 18 December 2024

The Aspiring CEOs programme will give delegates powerful practical skills and a sound base of leadership knowledge that will serve them well in current and future roles.
