BOARD DEVELOPMENT TEACHING & TRAINING
Board development strengthens and enhances a board of directors' effectiveness and performance. It involves activities, strategies, and initiatives to improve the board’s composition, governance practices and decision-making capabilities.
Board development includes recruitment, training and education, leadership development, strategic planning, and succession planning. By investing in board development, organizations can build a stronger and more proficient board ready to handle their fiduciary and oversight responsibilities. By prioritizing teaching new skills that reflect these values, boards can ensure a broader representation of perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds.
Ultimately, board development focused on equity, diversity, and inclusion cultivates well-rounded boards that reflect the communities they serve and uplifts the collective potential for transformative impact.
I can develop a training program specific to your organization’s needs. Focusing on skills such as cultural competency, active listening, and inclusive leadership not only empowers board members to create spaces that value and respect diverse voices but also paves the way for authentic collaboration and the equitable distribution of opportunities.
