Your board has recognized the need for diversity and inclusion. So how do you recruit authentically and avoid tokenizing candidates and new members? What changes do you need to make to truly transform your board? And is your organization ready?
Please join Nicole Jacobs Silvey, President and Founder of Connection Coach KC, to discuss:
- How to find board candidates outside your typical circles, and how to recruit and include them authentically
- Why many boards have trouble acting on diversity and inclusion initiatives
- How to move past real or conceived compromises in prioritizing board diversity -- the notion that you must sacrifice "influence and affluence," for example
- Resources to help you integrate diversity and inclusion into your strategic decisions, rather than feel competition between the two
One of the most important roles of a nonprofit board is to provide the organization with the greater community and national context as it makes strategic and financial decisions. It cannot do that from a single, dominant perspective.
Bring your questions, challenges, and anecdotes. We will open up discussion -- with the opportunity to remain anonymous if you choose -- at multiple points in the webinar. Get serious about what your board can achieve in 2019 and beyond!
All registrants will receive the recording and materials afterward.
