Nonprofit Board Service 101: The Foundations of Equitable Governance
 

This introductory workshop explores the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit board service through the lens of equity and an examination of how the nonprofit board members can shape their organizations for the benefit of everyone in their communities.

This session addresses effective board culture and the board's role in strategy, the CEO partnership, financial oversight and fundraising, while balancing history, sector context and practical tips and checklists that will be helpful to new and veteran board members alike.

Governance 201: Actions and Perspectives on Racial Equity and Nonprofit Board Service
 

This interactive four-hour session builds on the foundational roles shared in "Nonprofit Board Service 101" and expands the discussion of the history and impact of American racial inequity on nonprofit organizations. 

It will help organizations assess their readiness for equity work, map a path toward equity and belonging, and better understand the trust-conditions necessary for bold conversations, while inviting board members to find practical ways to advance equity within their own nonprofits. 

 

This session includes time for participants to discuss the strategies and concepts of racial equity in small groups, building confidence to take knowledge back to their boards and shape more aware, inclusive and just organizations.
