Board skills matrix

Philanthropy Australia Board 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.
