The League’s four assessment tools, the Board Diversity in Action Assessment Tool, Your Orchestra, Your Community: Roadmap to Success, the Board of Directors Self-Assessment Tool, and Assessing Your Financial Health are available to League members.
The Board Diversity in Action Assessment Tool by BoardSource
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:
- Overview of diversity and inclusion
- Perception and value of diversity
- Policies and Practices
- Recruitment Practices
- Board Culture and Dynamics.
