Event Description

The Board of Directors is an important component of a nonprofit organization.  In fact, the law requires there to be a board of directors, which has ultimate power, control and responsibility over and for the organization. 
But, what is the board of directors? What are its rights and powers? Where does it sit in the organization chart?  What is its relationship to management? In what way can the board be structured to accommodate specific needs? How does a board make decisions?  Is the board of your organization doing its job adequately?  Would it make sense to recruit and pay experienced professionals to serve on your board instead of relying on volunteers? Is your board adequately supporting management?   
The goal of this session is to explain and reinforce the vitally important role of the board of directors at a deep and fundamental level by using the four chapters on this topic contained in The TANGO Nonprofit Method textbook as our guide.

Investing Patient Capital in Established BIPOC Businesses to Close the Racial Wealth Gap

LISC’s George Ashton takes a close look at why growth in the pre-pandemic number of minority-owned businesses has failed to narrow the racial wealth gap. The answer: existing BIPOC businesses don’t have access to the kind of growth capital they need to build their resiliency, expand their workforce and support next-generation success. "By expanding access to growth capital, we can make our small business ecosystem more diverse and robust, matching appropriate financing to the needs of community-based businesses," he writes in a piece for Impact Alpha.
