Step on Board Alumni

Over 400 people have now joined Boards through the programme. This growing network is an opportunity to build a network of fellow trustees to share learning and insights.

As an alumni of Step on Board, you will have access to our networks and receive regular updates on sector governance and invitations to exclusive events.

The Step on Board pilot at Barclays focuses on preparing and helping emerging and established leaders secure board positions with not-for-profit organisations.

The programme has gone on to become a leading employee talent initiative that has been rolled out to numerous organisations including Credit Suisse, RBS, EY, Google and British Land.

It aimed to start creating a community of these new trustees, who are making a huge difference to organisations across the UK and Ireland.

Existing alumni

We would love you to be part of the closed Linkedin Step on Board Alumni group, a forum for those who have taken part in the Step on Board programme to connect and to learn more about governance and the social sector.
