We value and promote diversity
Tim Wates, Chairman, Coast to Capital
"Coast to Capital is an inclusive organisation that values and promotes diversity. We work across a diverse and vibrant region and believe that our impact is enhanced through championing inclusion, and reflecting the dynamic businesses and communities that we support.
"As well as fostering growth and innovation, diversity is about the individual; understanding that each of us is different and making sure we respect and celebrate the variety of backgrounds, perspectives, values, and beliefs. It is therefore an integral part of the delivery of our strategy.
"We are committed to ensure that at least one third of our Board members are women by the end of the 2019-2020 financial year, and we look to grow this to an equal representation of men and women on our Board by the end of the 2022- 2023 financial year.
"We have also named Julie Kapsalis as our Diversity Champion on the Coast to Capital Board. Julie has been a Board Member at Coast to Capital since 2013 and is currently Managing Director at Chichester College Group, as well as having a portfolio of Board roles and experience in leadership roles across the public and private sector.
