Deepen your understanding of bias and inclusive culture and assess your board diversity practices! Board Diversity and Inclusion: Deepening Understanding and Practice equips board members with a deeper understanding of inclusive and welcoming board practices. This workshop looks into the ways that bias impacts board culture, and introduces a benchmarking tool to assess current diversity and inclusion practices of your board.
