ROTA (January 2017) Where are the BAME Trustees? Under-Representation of BAME people on the Boards of Charities in the UK: Pilot Study Report

Preliminary findings from ROTA suggest that BAME people are among the least-represented group as Trustees of charities, in the UK.  The Boards of many mainstream voluntary sector organisations have few or no BAME trustees. Although the charities in our survey were aware of the need to increase diversity amongst their trustees, there was little evidence that positive steps were being taken to address this issue.

Learn more about the reasons why this may be happening, and what ROTA hopes to do to improve the level of BAME representation in our report HERE.

ROTA (September 2016) Equality and Inclusion in the Academies Programme: 2016 - Literature review and analysis of written submissions to the Education Committee Inquiry on Multi-Academy Trusts

Equality and Inclusion in the Academies Programme: 2016 indicates that the democratic process, by which local communities have a say in what happens to their schools, could be in jeopardy and that BAME people in particular are under-represented on the governing bodies of Multi-Academy Trusts.
 
Closing the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and others has not been effectively addressed by some of the largest Multi-Academy Trusts in England. Furthermore, the assessment processes carried out by MATs appear to disproportionately exclude BAME pupils and fail to adequately support excluded pupils.
