Nonprofit Boards Gender Diversity

The annual "Women on Boards" is out and the dissapointing findings about Philadelphia area publicly traded companies and nonprofit boards include learning that:

Nearly four in 10 - 39 percent - of top executive positions at 18 area colleges are held by women. Yet women make up only 14 percent of executive ranks at public companies.

At public companies, females fill 12 percent of the board seats, but they more than double that - at 26 percent - at 17 of the region's health care…

Nonprofit Board and Tainted Money

The decision by Susan B. Komen For the Cure to accept a pretty large (by most nonprofit standards) gift from an oil fracking company appears to be creating for other nonprofits a stir akin to drilling teeth. You can read a "bit" about the issues here.

Included among the "issues":

a) tainted money -- when is it tainted and when/if should a nonprofit not accept such resources

b) public perception - when/if should a nonprofit respond to the "noise"

c) board position…

Restorative Practices: A Toolbox for Turbulent Times

Transcription of John and Peter's May 8, 2018 conversation with Thom Allena about his work in getting justice out of courthouses and into neighborhoods. Thom is a community and organizational psychologist who for nearly thirty-five years has worked in the fields of community and restorative justice, applying creative approaches to respond to crime, violence and group conflict. In Thom’s community justice work, citizens are invited to play active rather than passive roles in determining the shape of justice and become more directly involved in redressing the quality of life issues that are breached by crime.

The Real Stories Behind the Unemployment Story

An article in The Guardian examines the full and complex story behind the nation’s jobless numbers as it plays out in Kansas City. LISC’s Financial Opportunity Centers are highlighted as a partial solution to egregious rates of unemployment among African Americans, helping people to become “net cash positive” and to build plans that are “inspiring to them,” says LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones.

LISC Institute Retools for the Future

Nearly a decade ago, LISC created the Institute for Comprehensive Community Development as a platform for the dynamic exchange of knowledge and ideas about our shared work, and as a clearing house for best practices. Since then, it has trained thousands of people in the field and shared hundred of articles, opinions and research reports. Now, with renewed energy and leadership, we are delighted to be relaunching the Institute, equipped with an interactive website and a trove of fresh tools, views and data that will help propel our work into the future. Read all about it in a message from the Institute's founders.
