Board Development


Board development has been one of our key organizational development services at Converge. We help design clients’ organizational governance structure so that aboard not only undertakes their role more effectively but integrates the lens of racial equity into its functioning. Examples include clients’ requests to create or re-design the infrastructure and culture of nonprofit or philanthropic organization’s boards.

There are also needs to design and build a racial equity and inclusion committee. More specifically, this committee operationalizes the organization’s Racial Equity and Inclusion (REI) framework. Its duties include (1) monitoring application of REI in internal decisions about resources including vendors, pay and benefits, leadership development, hiring and board development, (2) conducting REI impact assessments for external work including program areas, partner relationships, advocacy strategies, and legal strategies, and (3) advising the Board’s annual work plan.
