External Event: The Kids Company case – Impact on charity governance Webinar

The Kids Company case – Impact on charity governance – Tuesday 13 April 2021 12:30pm – 1:45pm

The outcome of the court case into the governance of Kids Company has the potential to impact charity governance considerably; particularly the way trustees undertake their roles and the way the chief executive interacts with the board. Given the complex issues surrounding who may be deemed a shadow or de facto director (and trustee in charitable companies), the repercussions of falling foul of them can be considerable.

Join this debate as our panel share their thoughts on the new era for charity governance.

External Event: Charity Trustees Webinar Update Series Part One

Charity Trustees Webinar Update Series Part One – Wednesday 21 April 2021 10:30am – 11am

As we begin to emerge from lockdown the world looks a very different place to just over a year ago. Facing challenge, we fight, flee or freeze and mindful of the risk of information overload, the Charity Commission has recently launched a suite of user-friendly 5-minute guides for charity trustees, to help them “be certain in uncertain times”.

It always helps to have examples of good and not-so-good governance, and so we have designed two half hour webinars to bring the 5-minute guides to life with reference to key charity law developments in the last 12 months, including a selection of high-profile court judgments and Commission investigations, such as the Kids Company case and the Oxfam inquiry.

External Event: IGS Research Seminar – Women Can’t Paint

Women Can’t Paint: Gender, the Glass Ceiling and Values in Contemporary Art – Thursday 22 April 2021, 6pm

In 2013 Georg Baselitz declared that ‘women don’t paint very well’. While shocking, his comments reveal what Helen Gørrill argues is prolific discrimination in the artworld. In a groundbreaking study of gender and value, Gørrill proves that there are few aesthetic differences in men and women’s painting, but that men’s art is valued at up to 80% more than women’s. Indeed, the power of masculinity is such that when men sign their work it goes up in value, yet when women sign theirs it goes down.

Gørrill proves how the price of being a woman impacts on all forms of artistic currency – social, cultural or economic – and, in the vanguard of the #MeToo movement, she calls for the artworld to take urgent action.
