Diversity at the board level is fundamental to the health and success of an inclusive arts organization. Yet, for many orchestras, it remains an elusive goal. Join us to hear directly from board members representing a variety of backgrounds about the identification, cultivation, and retention strategies that have been resonant in engaging and supporting them as board members. Explore the influence of organizational culture and messaging. And, leave better equipped to engage and center the voices of individuals from across the communities you serve in the vital work of governance.
