Engaging A Nonprofit Board to Address Racial Equity
August 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
Nonprofit Quarterly recently organized two webinars on How Can Boards Join the Movement for Racial Justice. In a follow up to our most recent discussion on navigating conversations around race and equity, we planned a follow-up session on August 17th at 11 AM to focus on how to engage a nonprofit board in the conversation around racial justice.
During the session we will cover:
- A brief review of a sampling of tools to begin a conversation about racial equity.
- Discussion of how boards of directors are responding right now and the barriers.
- What questions or can help to kickstart conversations?
- How do we navigate that individual board members may have very different levels of understanding and awareness?
- Provide an opportunity to think about the role of the board in conversations around racial equity;
- Hear from peers about their experiences working with board members to talk about racial equity;
- Identify one or two ideas for how participants might engage a board in a conversation around racial equity.
