There has been an increasing desire for boards and senior leaders to reflect the diversity of the communities they serve. Programs such as the 50-30 Challenge, the BlackNorth Initiative, and the federal government’s Clerk’s Call to Action are committed to increasing the representation of Indigenous and equality-deserving people on boards and in senior leadership positions.
As someone who has been involved in board recruitment, as a candidate and as a recruiter, I have seen many challenges boards face during the recruitment and succession planning process.
Join us on November 23rd at 1:00 PM for a free micro-class to discuss Three Mistakes Boards Make in Recruiting Equality-Deserving Candidates. We will explore:
- Challenges to board recruitment and retention
- Why we need to think more critically about what we mean by “diversity”
- Strategies to ensure effective recruitment and retention of board members
