This book provides guidance, through practical exercises, for nonprofit board members and chief executive officers (CEO) to achieve the benefits of diversity, inclusion, and equity in the boardroom and for their organizations. Adoption of specific inclusive practices enhances performance outcomes while benefiting members of underrepresented groups.  

The book challenges leaders and board members to take new approaches, beginning with understanding what diversity and inclusion mean to the individual board members, the collective board of directors, and the organization. Additionally, the book challenges board members and top leadership to think about how to foster an inclusive culture by focusing on inclusive interaction practices among board members. This book takes a look at eight common excuses boards of directors use as to why they have not made diversity, inclusion, and equity central to their leadership demographics and decision-making processes. For each excuse, we provide an easy-to-understand rationale, often including definitions and research- or practice-based evidence to justify for why the excuse is just that, an excuse!  

Practical exercises provide step-by-step suggestions for improving your organization’s diversity, inclusion, and equity, while simultaneously enhancing board performance and organizational outcomes.
