Top Down Leadership – Embracing Diversity & Inclusion in Your Mission and Goals

(View Recorded Webinar)

(EIC Clock Hour Approved 1.0 - Domain F: Stakeholder Management)

If someone took a 30,000 foot view of your organization, board of directors and senior leadership team, what impressions would they get?  How much diversity is truly represented there?  Would potential candidates see themselves represented there, and could they identify with your organization as a place where they would be accepted and valued?  Forward thinking organizations take these things into consideration when recruiting leadership, developing core values and organizational culture.  Learn about how one local association uses diversity and inclusion strategies to directly support its mission in helping women of all ages, cultures, and needs.


  • Embracing an organizational mission devoted to seeking out a diverse board of directors.
  • Instituting an organizational culture that actively solicits candidates of all ages, races, backgrounds and needs.
  • Tactics that allow everyone an opportunity to raise their hand and have a voice at the table.
  • Creating valuable event programming that speaks to and represents everyone in the room.
