Jun 19, 2011

BoardSource is dedicated to advancing the public good by building exceptional nonprofit boards and inspiring board service. In February 2011, BoardSource release Diversity in Action: A BoardSource Toolkit.

Diversity and inclusion are critically important for the sustainability of an organization and the nonprofit sector, but enacting them isn't easy. That's why BoardSource has created the Diversity in Action toolkit

The downloadable PDF contains 19 tools designed to help a board increase its diversity and adopt the inclusive policies and practices that will create the culture needed to sustain an organization's commitment to diversity.

The tools focus on helping boards to:

    understand why diversity and inclusion are important
    build commitment to diversity and inclusion
    recruit new members with diversity in mind
    adopt inclusive practices and behaviors in board meetings
    measure and sustain your progress

Diversity in Action features case studies, sample policies and guidelines, and an action plan that will equip boards for the challenging but doable task of ensuring that board members represent diverse points of view. Click to see the Table of Contents.
