“ETT are committed to reflecting the diversity of the nation on our stages and within our workforce, so we’re delighted to be working on ADF’s Board Shadowing Programme. It’s essential that we find new pathways into leadership roles within the industry, and through their visionary work, ADF are opening up access to positions of influence that will change and invigorate the sector immeasurably in the years to come.” — Richard Twyman, ETT Artistic Director
The ADF Board Shadowing Programme: London Edition presents a first-time opportunity for London-based aspiring trustees from culturally diverse backgrounds to gain an insight into the boardrooms and operations of theatre companies in the UK. Over the duration of six months, up to eight selected ADF Members will have the opportunity to shadow the board meetings at three theatre companies, as well as gain the opportunity to engage with each organisation outside of the boardroom, including attending press nights, subcommittee meetings, open rehearsals and group tours within the organisation to meet staff members and stakeholders. The ADF Board Shadowing Programme is designed to broker the relationship between aspiring trustees from culturally diverse backgrounds and existing boards of directors at leading theatre organisations to redress the balance of diversity at governance level.
