The Declining Diversity of Nonprofit Boards and What to Do About It

Tuesday, September 12th

3:00pm - 4:00pm EST 

With all the talk in recent years about diversity on nonprofit boards, you would think that nonprofits across the country might be prioritizing this issue, and by now we might see boards that are more representative of the populations they serve. In fact, BoardSource’s Leading With Intent report shows that diversity has actually declined on nonprofit boards. Is this a question of ineffective or inept action, or are boards simply not prioritizing diversity? Find out in our exclusive webinar with Anne Wallestad, BoardSource’s CEO, and Vernetta Walker, BoardSource’s Chief Governance Officer and Vice President of Programs, with special guest Ramona Johnson, Senior Relationship Manager for the Southern Region with NeighborWorks America. We’ll delve into what it looks like when a board resists diversity and how you can encourage change on your board.

Among the takeaways you can expect:

  • What does the research actually say and what does it mean for your organization;
  • What does it tend to look like when a board resists diversity;
  • What action steps can you take now to lay groundwork for change.
