Nonprofit organizations have a unique opportunity and a responsibility to advocate on behalf of the communities they serve and to elevate the experiences of people and communities most affected by the work. The board of directors should be at the heart of that effort.
In this Upswell Pop-Up session, we explore how a diverse board driving racial equity can lead an organization to effectively elevate voices and create change. The conversation provides insights and practical tips to help your organization’s board take a mission-focused approach to public policy issues and local advocacy.
