There is increasing evidence that diversity in the boardroom is essential for the long-term financial success of both for-profit and nonprofit organizations. However, some organizations believe that board diversity is important for more than financial reasons – that board diversity is necessary for any socially responsible organization seeking to contribute to a just and fair community. Other organizations don't think about it at all, or struggle with what diversity means for their boards and how to achieve it.
This program provides an opportunity for participants to learn from leading experts in corporate and nonprofit board governance, and to engage in roundtable discussions about the ethics of board diversity: what it is, why it matters, as well as some opportunities, challenges, and successes in increasing diversity on a board.
The cost is $25 and includes a continental breakfast. Registration is required.
