Over the past several years, the topic of board diversity has been in the spotlight. But what exactly is board diversity? And how does a board become diverse? Join the NACD Philadelphia Chapter and The Forum of Executive Women for a panel discussion on diversity in the boardroom. Hear directly from board recruiters and sitting directors about the processes, challenges and opportunities associated with achieving board diversity.
Nonprofits face many challenges today that are unique to the sector; however, they are not as different from their for-profit counterparts as one might think. Both require strong governance and oversight by the board and management to accomplish their goals. While they may not earn profit for shareholders, they do create enormous public profit with the nonprofit sector employing over 15% of Pennsylvaniaâ€™s workforce. Viewing nonprofits through a business lens will create dramatically healthier and sustainable communities.
Join the NACD Philadelphia Chapter and Drexel LeBow Raj & Kamla Gupta Governance Institute for this provocative discussion on the impact and role nonprofits play.
