NON PROFITS

ARE YOU AN INTENTIONALLY INCLUSIVE NONPROFIT OR BOARD DESIRING TO REFLECT THE MAKEUP OF YOUR DIVERSE COMMUNITY?

 

According to Leading with Intent, only 20 percent of all board members are people of color, and a full 25 percent of nonprofit boards are 100 percent white. But having a diverse board not only allows for a range of experience, expertise, and perspectives; it allows your nonprofit better access to both community resources and a diverse makeup of community donors.
 
If you are affiliated with a nonprofit desiring a board of directors that reflects the  diversity of the community it serves and are committed to diversity and inclusion, Board Connector would love to help you accomplish this goal.

Nonprofits interested in ensuring their boards are inclusive and reflect the diversity of their community must register their nonprofit below.  When a nonprofit registers, that organization is affirming its long term commitment to an inclusive board. (We don't want you to just check a box.)  Once the nonprofit is registered, you can post your vacancies on the platform, or if you want your search to remain confidential, you can contact the Board Connector Team to help you identify candidates. 


Register below to get started and by doing so, your nonprofit is expressing its commitment to diversity and having an inclusive board of directors.

Nonprofit boards are the stewards of public assets - community assets. When board members have differing view points, which are informed by diverse experiences, they are more likely to take into account various risks, consequences, and implications of possible actions taken. Simply put, more diverse boards make better decisions for the community.
