Board of Directors Self-Assessment Tool:Ā 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. BoardSourceā€™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.
