This month, twenty participants will begin participation in “Diversity On Board,” a collaborative program between Leadership Akron and United Way of Summit County. The program will develop more diverse talent on local nonprofit boards.
A key element of this program is the coaching group. A coaching group consists of 3-4 established community leaders of all backgrounds who share a commitment to diversity and inclusion. The group will meet with a few participants in the Diversity On Board class to share their experience, debrief what the participants are learning and connect them to opportunities for community involvement.
