Inclusion and Diversity
Board Diversity in Action: A New Assessment Tool Created 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.
Many types of diversity bring value to the boardroom. The Board 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
It is important to consider what diversity means to your board and organization and how adopting more inclusive practices will benefit your organization and lead to the advancement of its mission in a changing society.

In order to function at the highest level, nonprofit boards need to ensure that their members represent diverse points of view. And it is not enough to “diversify” a board; boards must be inclusive in their policies and practices, thereby creating a culture that encourages and nurtures diverse expression.
Diversity in Action provides the tools needed to help your board increase its diversity and adopt the inclusive policies and practices that will create the culture needed to sustain your organization’s commitment to diversity.
