We have a special focus on increasing the diversity of charter school boards; in the past year, 50 percent of CBP board recruits who joined charter school boards in Washington, DC are people of color. We strongly believe that diverse board leadership is critical to effective governance; we can work with you to develop a robust pipeline of board candidates that represents the students and families in your schools and can lead to a stronger overall approach to diversity within the school.
"It’s no surprise that diversity at the top promotes diversity throughout an organization.”
Diversity on the board does make a difference. In fact, board diversity is associated with positive organizational change in at least two ways… First, the presence of multiple minorities on the board is strongly associated with a solid diversity record. Second, the presence of influential minority board members can positively affect a company’s adoption of a wide range of equity and diversity practices.
