Limited Capacity seats available

The changing demographics of our country are creating a workforce more diverse than ever. With that diversity comes the need for nonprofit, foundation, commission and corporate boards to be more inclusive and more representative of the communities and customers they serve. Diverse governing boards can help institutions better align themselves with the communities they serve, stimulate dialogue and innovation, improve strategic thinking and decision-making and expand networks of dedicated talent.

Our intention is to answer critical questions that nonprofit leaders face including:

  • How do we define diversity, inclusion, and equity?
  • Why is diversity important to us?
  • How might diversity & inclusion increase our ability to serve our mission and communities?
  • Who will guide our efforts?
  • What external resources might be useful as we move forward?
