ActionAid appoints new chair of trustees

ActionAid UK has appointed Srabani Sen OBE as its new chair of trustees.

Sen, who is a regular Charity Times columnist and judge of the Charity Times Awards, will take up her new post in September.

She joins the charity with 30 years' experience in the charity sector, including CEO roles at Alcohol Concern, Contact a Family and the British Association for Adoption and Fostering. She has also chaired a number of charities, including 38 Degrees and The Winch.

In 2019, Sen launched leadership consultancy Full Colour to bring a new approach to diversity and inclusion.

Prior to that, she specialised in delivering sector-wide and organisation-specific projects around leadership, transformational change, and empowering people and communities through her consultancy which she launched in 2014.

“I am so excited to be joining ActionAid UK. It is such an incredible organisation – I feel privileged to be a part of it. Never have ActionAid UK’s efforts to create a fairer world mattered more. I can’t wait to join the Board, staff and volunteers of ActionAid UK, and contribute to the wonderful work they do," Sen said.

The charity's CEO, Girish Menon added: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Srabani to ActionAid. We are now at the halfway point of our five-year strategy, ‘Together with Women and Girls’, and her breadth of experience will be key to ensuring that we continue to change the lives of the most vulnerable women and girls – particularly in these unprecedented and challenging times.”
