AFP OH, Greater Cincinnati Chapter Event: N&K Building an Effective and Diverse Board of Trustees

It’s common knowledge that diversity – a variety of backgrounds, points of view, and areas of expertise – will improve a board’s ability to solve complex issues and understand the community’s needs from your organization. But how do you attract fresh faces and new thinkers to your board? Join AFP’s Networking & Knowledge series for insight on building a volunteer board that truly represents the community you serve. Hear from organizations that have been successful in increasing diversity among board leadership through intentional recruiting, community engagement, and reach into underserved areas.
