Why it Matters
Diverse boards help to raise awareness and understanding of the relevance of racial inequities of the organization’s mission.
67% of executives report that not enough time is spent by the board on building relationships within the Community that help support and inform the organization’s work.
Only 32% of boards place a high priority on “knowledge of the community served” as part of board recruitment.
“Board service is important because it exercises volunteerism at a high level. It also gives the board member exposure to different corporate styles.”
Sr VP & CIO, BBNC
“Board diversity is crucial. It helps to amplify voices within our communities.”
“Board service is a wonderful access point for community buy in; a chance to embrace leadership by dismissing the ego and listening to the stories of those you serve.”
