91% Women Leaders in SE's

91% Women Leaders in SE's

Susan Allen, Chief Executive, Customer Solutions Group, The Royal Bank of Scotland, said:

We’re delighted to be supporting this report as part of our long-standing partnership with Social Enterprise UK.  RBS has been working with the social enterprise sector for over 10 years and it has been fascinating to see it develop into what we see today. 

“It is particularly striking to see the diversity of both the leadership and workforce of social enterprise.  It seems that the sector is not just “changing the way we do business” but also changing ‘who’ does business. This report shows some impressive growth and optimism within the sector and highlights some areas where, arguably, social enterprise is leading the way for how to do business in the 21st century.”
