Is the structure of your board and committees designed to support your strategic plan and your diversity, equity, and inclusion goals? Are your board and committee meetings driving board members away? Do meetings produce board actions that drive the organization forward, or is the board stuck on minutiae that staff can handle? A well-designed board and committee structure and meeting agenda with the right leaders can make the difference in an organization’s ability to move ahead on transformational change. In this workshop, participants will learn to:
•    Deconstruct the structure and processes that may be holding your board back from being more effective and inclusive
•    Structure committees for greater leadership, impact and engagement
•    Redesign meetings for greater effectiveness, inclusivity and engagement
•    Develop an action plan for injecting new energy into your board’s work that helps members reengage and recommit

This workshop is ideal for nonprofit board members and nonprofit staff who engage with the board.

This workshop is part of a 4-program series. Register for all four workshops here, and receive a 20% discount off the single-workshop price.
