Rick Moyers is an independent consultant and a nationally recognized expert on the governance and leadership of nonprofit organizations and the role of philanthropy in building nonprofit capacity. In his talk Mr. Moyers will discuss current trends in board composition and the importance of diverse representation. There will also be opportunity for participants to engage in conversation about how to address board diversity in their own organizations.

For 14 years, Moyers held senior leadership positions at the Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation in Washington, DC — a private foundation focused on building an equitable DC region in which people who are economically vulnerable thrive. He has also served as executive director of the Ohio Association of Nonprofit Organizations. Moyers is a frequent writer and speaker on philanthropy and nonprofit governance and leadership. He is the author of
The Nonprofit Chief Executive’s Ten Basic Responsibilities (published by BoardSource in 2012) and the co-author of the Daring to Lead 2006 and 2011 research reports, which highlighted the challenges facing nonprofit executives. Rick currently serves on the boards of BoardSource (as chair), the Community Foundation for the Central Blue Ridge, and the Community Connections Fund of the World Bank Group.

RAFI will host the Equity at the Table Speaker Series in locations across North Carolina from March through August 2018. The series is designed for people who are working in the intersection of equity and food security and for those with the desire to think more critically about equity in their work and volunteerism.

RAFI invites people of faith, farmers, activists, and journalists to come hear these perspectives.
