Description

Please note that the date for this event has changed to April 24th.

Studies show that diverse boards are more successful, and many nonprofit leaders recognize the need to bring a variety of voices into the conversation. So why are so many boards still struggling to diversify their ranks? Change is needed, and it's needed now. We've gathered an all-star panel to discuss how to ramp up board recruitment efforts and ensure that everyone has a seat at the table.

Panelists include:

  • Amber Hikes, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of LGBT Affairs for the City of Philadelphia

  • Greg El, CPA, Partner for TriZen, LLC

  • Sulaiman Rahman, CEO at DiverseForce and Founder / CEO of Urban Philly Professional Network (UPPN)

  • Andy Toy, Development & Communications Manager at SEAMAAC

  • Moderated by Alan Jacobson, Strategic Director + Founder at J2 Design

The event is free but space is limited, so please RSVP.

The panel will begin at 9:30 am and conclude at 10:30 am. Come early at 9:00 am or stay until 11:00 am for mingling and networking! The panel discussion will be followed by a robust Q&A. Coffee and light breakfast fare included.
