Strengths of the Student Movement and its Relationship with the Voluntary Sector
Laura Hyde's reasearch outlines her vision of greater collaboration between the student movement and wider voluntary sector. It draws on her 15 years experience of working in the student movement, as well as extensive interviews with leaders across the sector.
Her research identifies the opportunity for the student movement to increase it’s workforce diversity by learning lessons from the wider voluntary sector, particularly to attract more senior staff from a BME background; and in turn, that the voluntary sector should follow the student movement’s lead in involving more beneficiaries in decision-making.
