Assessment Tools

Board of Directors Self-Assessment Tool: Developed in partnership with BoardSource and customized for orchestras, this assessment tool identifies areas of strength and opportunities for growth.

Board Diversity in Action Assessment: As the demographics of our society change, nonprofit boards are recognizing the need to become more culturally competent to meet the needs of the diverse communities their organizations serve. BoardSource’s Diversity in Action assessment tool focuses on age (multi-generational), gender, and racial/ethnic diversity. It covers five areas to determine what phase of development your board is in relative to diversity and inclusion:

  1. Overview of diversity and inclusion
  2. Perception and value of diversity
  3. Policies and practices
  4. Recruitment practices
  5. Board culture and dynamics

Your Orchestra, Your Community: Roadmap to Success: Designed by orchestras for orchestras eager to reach out and make a difference in their community’s future as well as their own.
