Board Nomination & Selection Grid
Many boards look for ways to diversify the board. Diversification helps a board build strength and capacity. Diversification can provide a board with a mix of people that have strong community contacts in many different communities.
Boards can most effectively build diversification by identifying the key skills needed, and then a diverse mix of people that might have those skills. Recruiting to skill ensures that people come onto a board with some sense of the work they will do. As such, they are much more easily integrated.
The matrix below provides some help to boards looking to diversify:
