Leadership Forum: Attracting & Retaining Diverse Voices on Your Nonprofit Board with Yvette Murry

Multiple studies show that organizations with diverse perspectives have better productivity, creativity and community relations than homogenous ones.  Diversity, equity and inclusion start with the leadership of the organization--the board--for nonprofits.

This seminar will discuss approaches to attracting and keeping diverse voices on your board, barriers to success and how to overcome those obstacles. Board members, Executive Directors and staff leaders are welcome.

Additionally, VolunteerConnect will be offering a BoardConnect Diversity and Inclusion Program in the Spring 2020 to recruit people traditionally not included on boards. We highly recommend that a member of your board attend this Leadership Forum with Yvette Murry as a prerequisite if you want to participate. More specifics on the Diversity BoardConnect program to follow.
