Board skills matrix

The Philanthropy Australia Board works hard to optimise Board composition for effective leadership and governance. To this end a skills, experience and diversity matrix was established to help understand the strengths of, and gaps within the current Board, so we can ensure the Board is representative of the broader community and contemporary philanthropy.

As at the start of 2019, the Board would like to attract the following skills and profiles:

  • Cultural diversity
  • Indigenous
  • Finance
  • PR/Communications
  • NFP Leadership
  • Age diversity
  • Government relations (policy and process)

In addition, Board Members need contemporary and future focused understanding of current practices and the potential for philanthropy.
