Block 2 : Bringing a DEI Focus to the Board Room

jul 24, 2018: 1:15 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

Diversity, equity and inclusion are critical for governing boards to understand and operationalize in their work as board members. Research confirms that diversity matters, yet many organizations are not intentional about their pursuit of a diversity agenda. How can board members ensure they are intentionally creating diverse, equitable, and inclusive boardrooms? We will address why a DEI focus is an imperative and discuss practical ways to intentionally foster a diverse and inclusive governance model.

Learning Outcomes: 

Board members will discuss and learn strategies for building an inclusive culture at the board level.
