Wanted – Board Members for Housing Diversity Network (HDN)

The Vision of HDN is to inspire and empower people, promoting equality, diversity and opportunity for all.

Housing Diversity Network is an established national social enterprise that helps to ensure organisations get the best from all of their staff, meet the needs of the communities they serve and as an organisation is committed to addressing inequality more broadly in society. We are based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire and work with over 100 member organisations in the housing sector supporting them on equality, diversity and inclusion, through Staff/Board Mentoring Schemes, Consultancy and Training, Equality Briefings, our Diversity Network Accreditation scheme, Seminars, Conferences and Events.

We have a staff team of seven and a diverse pool of associates/consultants who help us to deliver high quality services.

We are looking for new voluntary Board Members to join our Board. In particular, we are looking for members with skills and experience in finance, legal issues, ICT, the commercial sector and third sector. The Board meet four times a year and Board members will attend occasional conferences and events (travel expenses to meetings will be paid).
