Inclusive, inspiring, influential
Our Mission & Vision
Changing the Chemistry in the boardroom so people and boards embrace diversity of thought.
Diversity of thought - being identity, cognitive and experiential – who we are, how we think and what we have lived through
To be the most effective peer to peer support network, head-quartered in Scotland, that helps members secure board appointments and be effective
Changing the Chemistry was established in 2011, proudly emerging from the ‘Inspiring Women Leaders – Dare We?’ event
At the start of our journey we recognised and celebrated not just gender diversity but diversity of all kinds, and we continue to embrace this through our philosophy of promoting diversity of thought.
CtC was the first organisation in the UK to operate in this field and we remain a UK-wide leader. Headquartered in Scotland, we became a Scottish Incorporated Charitable Organisation (SCIO) in 2015.
Free to join, CtC is reliant on peer-to-peer support, generating income through a variety of commercial activities, including training provision and corporate membership (Affiliate membership).
Courage - we will be courageous in all we do
Tenacity – we strive for individuality, making a difference and proactive collaboration
Credibility - we will build a reputation as change agents
Making a difference – encouraging and influencing organisational change
