Does your organization have a diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging strategy? Are you actively looking to build a more inclusive system to foster greater board diversity? Do you have clients or representatives of the communities you serve actively sitting on your board?
There are so many questions to ask when deciding the best ways to diversify your board makeup. True board diversity requires more than changing the faces around your table. You need to cultivate a new, more inclusive system, which requires intention, time, and effort. As nonprofit leaders, it can be overwhelming to know where and how to start.
That's why we've invited Nicole Jacobs Silvey, Founder of Connections Coach KC, to share an interactive session. Nicole will leave you with easy steps you can take today to start the marathon of shifting power and building a more inclusive organization, from the top down.
During this session, participants will gain:
- An understanding of historical and systemic factors that lead to homogenous boards
- Templates to help analyze current board make up and processes for setting goals
- Examples of tangible steps nonprofits can take to create more viewpoints at the table
- Case studies of nonprofits that have started their board diversity journey and lessons learned
This session is ideal for board members and executive leaders.
