Stonewall appoints a new Director of Fundraising and Business Development
Sofia Haque has been appointed as Stonewall’s new Director of Fundraising and Business Development.
Stonewall is a national LGBTQ+ organisation located in the United Kingdom that for decades has advocated for the rights of the community. Stonewall partnered with Society in the search for a Director of Fundraising and Business Development to lead the department and continue helping Stonewall fulfil its role in society. The organisation emphasised the importance of having a diverse candidate pool when it came to race/ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation.
Society looked thoroughly throughout the United Kingdom for candidates with the experience needed to be successful in the role:
• 74% of individuals we reached out to identified as women;
• 51% of individuals we reached out to were BAME;
• 50% of the resulting candidates identified as men, 25% identified as women and 25% identified as non-binary;
• 100% of the candidates presented were members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Sofia Haque, the successful candidate, commented: “I am truly privileged to have the opportunity to lead the Fundraising and Business Development Department at Stonewall and contribute to this important organisation's mission at such a critical moment for LGBTQ+ rights. Huge thanks to Jomar and Tanya at Society, who were instrumental in my appointment and guided me through the recruitment process. I can’t wait to get started!”
