Volunteer Victoria: Inclusion: Transforming The Way In Which Boards Engage In EDI Practices
June 16 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
About this event
Transforming the way Boards engage in EDI Practices.
Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) are the buzzwords nowadays; but understanding that these concepts and practices are critical for organizations and, particularly non-profit Boards is of the essence to build accountability, increase effectiveness, and reflect the demographics of the community the organization serves.
But, do Board Members know how to engage in EDI? This work goes beyond inviting ‘diversity’ into the room. In fact, this approach might not work at all.
Join us for this 2 hour overview of practices that will help your Board recruit, maintain, and build capacity while becoming aware of the need to operate through an equity lens.
Learning objectives include:
• Understanding how to operate through an equity lens
• Explore EDI strategies and practices
• Awareness of gaps, commitments, and next steps
