Earlier in this webinar series, we delved into the diversity findings from BoardSource’s 2017 report Leading with Intent, which emphasized that not only has board diversity declined, but that this situation is unlikely to change, given that boards are not prioritizing demographics when recruiting even as nonprofits express dissatisfaction with their boards’ diversity.
In Part 2, we 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?
