Increasingly, nonprofit boards are recognizing the need to become more inclusive of diversity in order to meet the needs of the communities they serve and achieve their missions. Attendees will review key trends and statistics that illustrate the national nonprofit landscape relative to board diversity and inclusion. Through the examination of barriers to, strengths of and opportunities for diversity, inclusion and equity on your board, you will be able to make a strong case for fostering a culture of inclusion and advancing social equity.
With this presentation of practical strategies to genuinely and authentically build and sustain diverse boards, as well as the exploration of a case study depicting a local nonprofit that recently completed a comprehensive diversity action plan, you will leave this workshop with the requisite tools to effectively promote this work in your organization. This session provides something for everyone, from the board that has already committed to building diversity, to the board that is just beginning these conversations.
