BoardConnect: Diversity & Inclusion

The BoardConnect Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Committee is developing a new program, in partnership with nonprofits, to create more equitable nonprofit organizations by increasing the diversity of nonprofit boards to better reflect the communities that they serve.

By including varied experience-based perspectives and competencies, nonprofit boards will have the insights needed to make more informed decisions and avoid the potential blind spots of homogenous teams. The program is intended to help nonprofits improve board governance, and thereby enhance performance, through diversity.

Stay tuned for more information. Our Advisory Committee is working to make this program available in early 2021.
