IoF #ChangeCollective's long term vision is for an equal, diverse and inclusive profession, where no matter what your personal characteristics, including gender identity, ethnicity, faith, age, class, sexuality, age or disability, or any and all intersectionalities of those characteristics, you will be “the right fit” for the fundraising profession.

Simon talks to Jonathan Levy (twitter.com/JLevyUK) - one of the faces of the campaign, National Convention board member, award-winning disability campaigner and Dyspraxia Foundation trustee.
