Moving Forward with Board Diversity: Readiness, Recruitment & Onboarding
What does board commitment to equity look like at this moment in time? This workshop explores 3 key elements: 1. Board readiness: Bringing in new people won’t change anything if the board isn’t ready to listen and change. What questions can boards ask to invite meaningful self-assessment, listening and change ? How do boards intentionally change their culture? 2. Recruiting- Boards generally spend minimal time on recruitment, and lack good systems to build pipelines. Let’s explore good recruitment practices and then apply to a DEI lens. 3. Onboarding- From the 1st hello to the 1st few meetings, let’s dissect what intentional actions create a pathway for new members to become a meaningful part of the board.
