LeadershipConnect: Moving Your Board Beyond Diversity to Belonging (Virtual)

Many nonprofits have increased the racial and ethnic diversity of our boards and are committed to the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). But once we bring in new board members, how do we make sure that we access and truly hear the perspectives that new board members bring to the table? How do we make sure that all board members feel included and choose to stay and be engaged?

Join Tanuja Dehne, President and CEO of the Geraldine Dodge Foundation for a “fireside chat” to get practical takeaways on what you can do next to move your board forward in DEI.

Session Date: Thursday, November 10th from 9:00am to 10:00am

This session is virtual and will be held online via Zoom.
