How To Address Your Nonprofit’s Board Diversity

November 28, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST


Earlier in this webinar series, we delved into the diversity findings from BoardSource’s 2017 report Leading with Intent, which highlighted that not only has board diversity declined, but that this is unlikely to change given that boards aren’t prioritizing demographics when recruiting even after nonprofits express dissatisfaction with their boards’ diversity. In Part 2, we will dive into questions raised fromthat earlier session including:

  • How do we create the will for change within the board?
  • How do we recruit a more diverse board and avoid tokenism?
  • How do we create a culture of inclusion?
  • What is the fundraising role of the board and does diversity impact this?

Presenters: Join Anne Wallestad, BoardSource’s CEO, and Vernetta Walker, BoardSource’s Chief Governance Officer and Vice President of Programs, as we answer these questions and more on this important topic and help you and your board move forward to build a more diverse and inclusive board and culture.
