Unique Workshops on Nonprofit Board Diversity

The Gifford Foundation has developed a special 2-part workshop series to assist nonprofit organizations in maximizing their knowledge and potential to build effective and diverse boards. For the first time the Foundation will combine a topic from their ongoing Board Development trainings with networking opportunities through the Nourishing Tomorrow’s Leaders program. The free workshops will be held Thursday, May 11th, 2017 4:30-7:30 pm and Wednesday, May 31, 2017 5-8 pm. Space is limited and organizations need to apply by May 4th through this link:

To attend this series organizations MUST register the Executive Director and a board member and commit to attending both sessions. Led by Maria Fibiger of Three Dog Consulting, the first session encourages honest and open conversations on the different interpretations and classification of diversity, and the importance of representing the people each organization serves. In the second session participants begin to utilize their newfound skills by networking with potential board members from diverse backgrounds trained through the acclaimed Nourishing Tomorrow’s Leaders program.

For any questions please contact Megan Wagner-Flynn by email or by phone 315-474-2489 x13.

NTL graduates James Graham and Dawn Penson present at a board diversity workshop.
