New membership programme in memory of Jane Slowey CBE

Everyone deserves the opportunity to be represented and encouraged into the sector, which is why Prospectus is proud to support the newly launched Jane Slowey memorial membership programme. Jane Slowey was the Chief Executive of the Foyer Federation, but died from cancer shortly after retiring in 2017. She had led the Federation for 13 years, prior to which she spent six years as Chief Executive of Birmingham Voluntary Services Council and had served as Vice Chair of NCVO. She was awarded a CBE in 2009 for services to disadvantaged young people.

The Jane Slowey memorial membership programme delivered by ACEVO and developed in partnership with those who knew Jane, will offer free expert support, guidance, advice and mentoring for women who are aspiring CEOs, or are in their first two years as a CEO for a charity or social enterprise. In keeping with the passions and priorities Jane held throughout her working life, the programme will prioritise applications from women under 45, from a BAME background and/or who have a disability.

Participants of the programme will receive: Full ACEVO membership, a mentor from one of eight charity CEOs and four learning/networking/training days.

David Gold, CEO of Prospectus says: “Jane’s passion about a better world and her realistic belief in what could be done created so many great outcomes for others.”
