Webinar: How To Address Your Nonprofit’s Board Diversity
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 from that 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?
“When looking for a board portal we reviewed several in the industry. BoardEffect met our functionality requirements equal to each of their competitors. Based on the function and price comparison BoardEffect was easily seen as the best solution. We have been pleased with our implementation and our ongoing support by BoardEffect. BoardEffect has a wide install base that gives them the experience to guide implementation decisions for best practice with their portal.”
