In the fourth episode of our leadership podcast series we are joined by Fozia Irfan, CEO of Beds & Luton Community Foundation. Fozia speaks to us about how she moved from being a lawyer to charity CEO, what role foundations have to play in affecting change in their communities, how philanthropy can become more accountable and how diversity, equity and inclusion is different from anti-racism.
Our leadership series is an opportunity to hear directly from sector leaders on how to get to grips with key strategic challenges. How do you deliver influence and impact, what’s the secret to communicating inspiring stories, where do you focus your energy to drive an organisation mission forward? Every leader has their own style – there is no right or wrong way but learning to be gained from past experiences.
