Impact of Diversity at the Board Table

THE BOARD
DIVERSITY INITIATIVE

BDI is dedicated to breaking down systemic barriers and celebrating diversity as the cornerstone of impactful governance. By embracing diversity, organizations unleash creativity, engage volunteers, and reach their full potential, driving meaningful change in the communities they serve.

"The very fabric of our society is inextricably tied to the effectiveness of our nonprofit sector through healthcare, the arts, education, and the humanities. It is a well-known fact that the best decisions are birthed when there is diversity of thought, perspective, and lived experience. The good of our nation is tied to our selection and support of diversity at the the governance level."

— Sidney Smith, Chief Operation Officer
Nonprofit Connect
