Description

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Nonprofit Boards

As the governing body at the highest level of organizational leadership, boards play a pivotal role in leading nonprofits that are fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The board’s buy-in, accountability, and investment in advancing DEI efforts is essential to effectively operate any nonprofit. Having diverse leaders who are representative of the communities that an organization serves and share a wide range of skills, talents, and perspectives enriches a board’s discussions resulting in stronger board deliberations as well as more meaningful and impactful decisions for the advancement of social good. This interactive panel session will help organizations strategize around diversifying their boards. Our panel of experts will provide valuable insight on:

  • What it means to have a board that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive
  • How to prioritize DEI in board cultivation, recruitment, and retention efforts
  • Why boards that value DEI are more engaged, effective, and credible and have greater impact
  • How to make the case for greater emphasis on DEI internally and practical advice for best practice

Speakers: Paula T. Edgar, Principal of PGE, LLC Rest of panel TBD

This session is open to all nonprofit organizations that are seeking to diversify their boards or are eager to learn more about the topic. Participants will have an opportunity to network with one another and engage with the panel.

  • What it means to have a board that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive
