LBOD Training: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Setting the Tone at the Top

Local Board of Directors Training #3 is coming up on Monday, March 20, from noon to 1:30 p.m. This training is a part of the mandatory board training for local programs.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Setting the Tone at the Top

Presenter: Vernetta Walker

Recent events, including protests for social justice, are a glaring reminder that inequity is present today in our communities, institutions, and even in nonprofit boardrooms across the social sector. To course correct, nonprofit boards have a responsibility to set the tone at the top!

In this training we will lay a foundation for advancing your DEI work, by exploring:

  1. How unconscious bias shows up on boards and in nonprofit organizations
  2. Challenging internal assumptions
  3. Developing action steps that are specific to your work
  4. Creating an authorizing environment
  5. Applying an equity lens to your work

Desired Outcome: Embrace DEI as mission-critical work for increased impact
