Board Diversity Balance Beam with Maranda Richardson of MWR Consulting

December 19, 2017

"The first step is that people have to acknowledge that we want to do something about this and it won't be status quo. First people have to own the problem, then work towards fixing it." Maranda Richardson, Principal and Founder of MWR Consulting, is back to talk about board diversity.  

According to Board Source's recent publication, Leading with Intent, while more people are TALKING about board diversity, the number of diverse members of nonprofit boards has actually decreased over the past few years.  Maranda has spent her career advancing equity, particularily in communities of color and shares her strategies to grow the diversity of nonprofit boards and staffs.
