Organized by and for people of color, Board Repair’s mission is to create a more effective nonprofit sector by increasing participation of people of color on boards. To advance their mission, they’re hosting a Board Recruitment Fair at Hamline University next month and are seeking nonprofits interested in diversifying their boards as well as people of color interested in joining local boards. Learn more by registering as an individual or as a nonprofit organization!
Are you a person of color interested in making an impact in the nonprofit sector by joining a board of directors? Is your nonprofit interested in diversifying its board? Come to the first ever Board Recruitment Fair, August 3, 6-8pm at Hamline University. We hope to have 100 organizations and a few hundred people of color seeking to join boards.
