United Way of Central Ohio Makes Board Diversity Part of Funding Process

It is undeniable that #Board #diversity remains a challenge for the #nonprofit community.

Starting early in 2020, the United Way of Central Ohio plans to include “board diversity” as part of the criteria in its next grant-application process. Charities seeking funding from the United Way will need to have diverse boards or a board-approved plan for achieving diversity.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this:

- Is this the best way to enhance Board diversity?

- Are there other concerns such as tokenism?

- What are some other alternatives?

You Can Diversify if You Want To

"The idea that elite organizations like #foundations have #boards that continue to choose not to reflect and represent the #diversity of civil society sends a message to the growing communities of color that they are not part of the solution and have nothing to contribute to solving the societal challenges we all share."
