Ruth Mojeed Ramirez, Chief Equity Officer, The Inclusion Project will lead us through how to stay true to shifting power and cultural changes while incorporating policy changes. Many board tables do not reflect the very communities they serve. Boards who engage in diversity at the board table while exploring who is in the room and included in the discussion discover it improves their ability to connect with and serve the community. Literature and evidence identify that Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the board table leads to better decision-making of boards and better outcomes, as well as advance organizational values and principles. This session will include practical resources and tools on how to equip boards and organizations with the key questions to ask when moving into policy and system change.
