AFP International Conference Attendees Share Thoughts on Diversifying Your Board, Donors, Methods
Last month, the NonProfit PRO team attended the 2017 Association of Fundraising Professionals’ International Conference, which took place in the beautiful city of San Francisco.
While we walking around the exhibit area, we saw something that caught our eyes—a diversity board!
The Alford Group, a professional consulting partner helping board leaders, organizational management and community stakeholders improve the effectiveness of their mission-based, nonprofit organizations, had a unique diversity board called “Diversity = Power” set up at their booth (which was roomy, open and inviting). They engaged attendees by asking them their thoughts on how nonprofits can diversify their board, donors and methods. Attendees were asked to write down their thoughts on a Post-it note and stick it onto the board.
