22 October 2019

30 Finsbury Square, London, EC2A 1AG

This timely symposium will look at the current and future challenges and opportunities for improving diversity in public appointments and for strengthening the balance of governance and accountability; especially when the creation of new public bodies and appointments to them may need to take place quickly once the UK leaves the EU, either with or without a “deal”.

Our exceptional speakers and panellists will draw on their own experiences of many years working in or observing the public appointments system. And there will be plenty of opportunity for delegates to ask questions, discuss ideas and share their own experiences with our panels and other delegates.

Who should attend?

If you are involved in recruitment and appointments to the boards of a public body, government department or advisory committee then you will find this symposium helpful in outlining current good practice and looking towards further developments.
