Empowering Governance: A Deep Dive into Board Diversity

Upcoming Webinar
May 7, 1:00–2:00 PM ET

Join us on May 7 for an AGB exclusive webinar, where the authors of AGB’s latest report, Diversifying Governing Boards will discuss their findings and insights. Building on our 2021 survey “Practices, Policies, and Composition of Governing Boards of Colleges, Universities, and Institutionally Related Foundations,” this session explores the advancements and strategies in diversifying the composition of governing boards.

Why Attend:

The multifaceted challenges confronting higher education today necessitate a governing board that’s as diverse and dynamic as the student populations and communities it serves. This study shows a desire for greater diversification on governing boards, if not always an easy or clear path forward. The experiences and clarifying questions generated from those experiences, however, help to inform others and will continue through this interactive session.

Key Takeaways:

  • An understanding of the current trends in board diversification across various types of institutions
  • Insight into the strategic importance of diversity in governance and its role in navigating higher education’s complex challenges
  • Practical strategies and best practices for enhancing the diversity of your own governing board
