NFP Board Diversity & Inclusion: Is it essentially Window-Dressing?
Wednesday February 10th, 2021 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm Eastern
Join Robin Cardozo, former Chair, Ontario Nonprofit Network, and former CEO, Ontario Trillium Foundation, and Matt Fullbrook, Manager of the David & Sharon Johnston Centre for Corporate Governance Innovation at the Rotman School of Management, as they pose provocative questions about the real impact of diversity at Not-for-Profit Boardroom tables.
About The Webinar
Much has been written and spoken about the importance of Board diversity in every sector. Reflecting on their own observations and experiences, the authors of this just-released report ask, provocatively, whether diversity is really making a difference in the NFP sector -- beyond the optics.
Incorporating insights from more than two dozen leaders in the sector – Board Chairs, Board members and CEOs – the webinar will present the report’s findings in thought-provoking and practical terms. This diverse group of Canadians shared with the report’s authors some of the challenges they have experienced, as well as their advice for making diversity work – through a deliberate strategy of inclusion.
