The fast pace of change dictates that boards and leadership have ongoing frank conversations about succession planning, partnerships, organizational structure, and how best to work together.

Cultivating Diversity in Nonprofit Board Rooms ~ February 24, 2022

This session will focus on the deep, critical, and intentional work that boards can take to develop a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive board that reflects the community served.
