Happy Thursday! I wanted to let you know of a fantastic webinar we have coming up next week, Advancing the Diversity of Your Board. Anika Kwinana, Manager of National Partnerships with The Kennedy Center will be joined by Tony Allegretti, former Executive Director of the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville and Tariana Navas-Nieves, Director of Cultural Affairs with Denver Arts & Venues. The three will discuss the importance of expanding the diversity of your board, as well as the processes they have taken to make this change a reality.
Date/Time: Wednesday, October 31 @ 3:00pm EDT
Description: Projected changes in the American demographic landscape over the next three decades provide a pivotal context for considering ways that the arts field can recognize and address the need for increased diversity in arts leadership. While the need to build board diversity cannot be ignored, those charged with leading this kind of change may feel uncertain on how they can effectively increase board diversity in their institutions. In this webinar, participants will hear from leaders who have been deeply involved in this work, and who will share their personal successes and challenges. These case studies will guide participants toward practical strategies to increase board diversity within their institutions.
We hope to see you there!
PS…even if you aren’t able to tune-in live, we recommend registering. This webinar will be recorded and available for replay about 24 hours following the original airing. And as always, this webinar is offered to you FREE as a member of Americans for the Arts.
