Amanda Jordan’s career crosses sectors- spanning the voluntary, government and business worlds. She currently chairs the Association of Charitable Foundations and is a trustee at Baring Foundation. Her previous charity roles include being Chair of the National Literacy Trust, a co-founder trustee of Step up to Serve which promotes social action among 10-20 year-olds and Chair at the Internet Watch Foundation (the self regulatory body for internet service providers).

Amanda is also well-known in the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability. She is a founder Director and now chair of Corporate Citizenship a global sustainability consultancy, and spent 10 years developing and managing an award winning CSR programme for NatWest. She is a member of the International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility Advisory Board at Nottingham University Business School and formerly served on the CSR Committee of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. Recently she has been looking at the role of corporate foundations.

Amanda will be sharing her own experience of chairing and draw on her wider experience to offer insights for Chairs on charity and business collaboration; and understanding the perspective of charitable foundations about the governance and leadership of the organisations they fund.

Join us for dinner to hear Amanda and discuss the issues with your peers. There are a limited number of places and this event is for AoC members and invited guests only. We aim to ensure a mix of members have the opportunity to attend these small events, for this reason we do not operate a first come first served approach to our dinners. Your place is confirmed only if you receive a second email confirming your place.

We are very grateful to CCLA one of the UK’s leading investment managers for charities, religious organisations and the public sector for generously hosting this dinner.
