Diversity and inclusion
We encourage attendance from members from ethnic minority communities as these groups are underrepresented in our sector and we are working to include their viewpoints in all our events.
We welcome all voices, whether spoken, issued prior to meetings, or during meetings electronically.
30 September 10.30 – 11.30am
Since launching, Thriftify’s technology has valued over four million donations, supporting dozens of charity retailers to sell online. Now, the technology is advancing based on the learnings and data the social enterprise has gathered.
In this interactive session the team at Thriftify will give a demonstration of their innovative new app and discuss how it solves the challenges of pricing and slow product listing times.
The session is suitable for charity retailers large and small. Ample time will be given for a Q&A at the end as well as an opportunity to provide insights and feedback on Thriftify’s new app. Thriftify is currently operating a waiting list for access to the app, however, all attendees will be eligible for a free six week trial.
Interest group dates
All interest groups are free to attend for both our charity and corporate members. Charity members can access meeting reports from past meetings by logging in here.
Face to face meetings are back
You will notice some of the events below have a physical location. Places are currently limited to 20 for physical meetings to ensure we meet social distancing requirements. When restrictions relax further we hope to extend this cap on numbers. However, given the current restrictions we are asking members to only book one person per charity to ensure as many charity members as possible can attend.
