Are the right people sitting around your board table? Is your board inclusive of the community you serve? Are your board meetings inclusive of all voices around the table?
Increasingly, nonprofit organizations 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. In this session we will explore key trends illustrating the nonprofit landscape relative to diversity and inclusion and interactively examine practical strategies and tools to advance social equity around the board table.
Appropriate for current and incoming board members and nonprofit professionals.
