Charity Times invites readers to nominate sector’s best leaders through Covid-19

Charity Times is urging people to nominate 20 ‘Pandemic Pioneers’ to celebrate innovative charity leadership over the course of the Covid-19 health crisis.

The events of the pandemic have meant a lot of changes for charities over the last 18 months, including a move to digital, new ways of fundraising and a complete overhaul of the working environment.

Charity Times is now looking for the individuals who have left an impression - even as things get back to a 'new normal'. It could be someone who has taken the crisis in their stride and transformed how things are done, or created or contributed to guidance that has helped charities through the events.

Individuals can nominate up to two people who they believe have helped shape the charity sector during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Nominees must be of chief executive level or equivalent and be part of a charity, or an organisation that works directly with charities, and have led on something that has transformed operations for more than one charity during the pandemic or heavily influenced the successful running of charities.

Nominations close on Friday 17 September and the form can be found here.

In this episode of the Charity Times Leadership podcast, we take a look at what the pandemic has taught us about the public’s perception of charities. Charity fundraising platform, Enthuse, recently released its quarterly donor research study, which highlighted significant shifts in donor behaviour throughout the duration of the pandemic. Not only does the report highlight an overarching sense of positivity towards the sector, but a propensity for younger generations to give more generously, too. Lauren Weymouth is joined by Enthuse CEO, Chester Mojay-Sinclare to discuss more.

The importance of the ‘S’ in ‘ESG’
In this episode, Lauren Weymouth is joined by Ketan Patel, equities fund manager at EdenTree, to delve into the issue of social investment and why that all-important ‘S’ in ESG is more relevant now than ever before. The social element of ESG often gets forgotten when thinking about investing in more ethical and sustainable ways. But, after a challenging year for all areas of society, social injustice has been highlighted, and there’s a much greater need for charities to put people at the heart of their investment decisions.
