Sir Stuart Etherington appointed as visiting fellow at Cumberland Lodge

NCVO’s chief executive, Stuart Etherington, has been appointed a visiting fellow at Cumberland Lodge, an educational institution and charity which is focused on inspiring and equipping people to tackle social division.

In the role, Sir Stuart will act as an ambassador for Cumberland Lodge and will bring his expertise to the Lodge’s academic life through contributing to its events and lectures programme.

The fellowship is for an initial three-year period. Cumberland Lodge’s other visiting fellows are Dr Rowan Williams, Baroness Shami Chakrabarti, Sara Thornton and Tariq Modood.

Sir Stuart said:

Cumberland Lodge is an outstanding institution and I’m deeply honoured to be given this opportunity to play a greater role in its life and its mission.

Crucial to the Lodge’s work is developing outstanding leadership and bringing together different perspectives. I hope to be able to encourage charity sector leaders to engage with and benefit from the Lodge’s work, which in my experience has been tremendously beneficial for leaders in many different fields.

Canon Dr Edmund Newell, Principal of Cumberland Lodge, said:

We’re delighted that Sir Stuart has accepted a visiting fellowship to Cumberland Lodge. As well as contributing to our work in addressing divisions in society, Sir Stuart’s expertise will be invaluable in our work with emerging leaders.
