How to Diversify Your Board

Emily Chang

AFP is committed to full diversity throughout the nonprofit sector, and our November 16 session will explore ways we might diversify our own respective boards of directors.  Our panelists will include Janet Marcotte, Executive Director of the Tucson YWCA; Emily Nyen Chang, President of the Planned Parenthood Arizona Board of Directors, and Debe Campos Fleenor of the United Way’s inclusion Council. The panel will be moderated by longtime AFP member Clyde Kunz.

Janet, the who has led the local YWCA for more than 25 years — and who will retire early next  year — is a longtime advocate of diversity. Emily is corporate council at W.L. Gore & Associates in Phoenix. Debe owns an Allstate Insurance Agency in Tucson and is a familiar face in the nonprofit community.

What does “board diversity” mean? Why is it important? Is your own board “diversified? Help us address those questions November 16th.
