Recruiting and Onboarding for Diversity and Inclusion
A diverse nonprofit board that includes people of all genders, races, ages, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, and levels of ability, will consider a variety of perspectives and ultimately make more informed decisions. But diversifying your board comes with challenges – how do you find new board members outside of your immediate circle? How do you ensure your board will embrace and respect a wider range of opinions and perspectives? Preparing for and embracing a diversified board requires commitment, planning, and humility.
In this session, we discuss how to help identify, attract, and retain diverse volunteers for your board. We also talk with a nonprofit leader who has successfully used our BoardStrong platform to grow and diversify the board of their organization.
This webinar was supported by the Hudson Valley Funders Network and presented by BoardStrong.
