Kate Hayes Diversity on Nonprofit Boards

In order to reconcile this desire with reality, creating intentional plans for diversifying nonprofit boards is essential. Further, we know that boards–and teams–that are more diverse actually perform better, so how can nonprofits take intentional steps to diversify their boards?
