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?
