Re-Thinking Board Development and Engagement: New Methodology for Diversity and Inclusion
Session 8D

Thursday, October 4 | 3:30–4:30 PM

Presented by: 
Adam Doyno

Session Description: 

Over time boards can become too old, too tired, too male, and too white. But diversity for the sake of diversity doesn't help to move an organization forward. Using a new methodology that considers race, ethnicity, gender, and orientation, one foundation built a new board and looked beyond traditional recruitment methods of wealth and philanthropy. Join this session to learn the steps taken through real life examples that can help your organization re-think or refresh your board.
