Closing the Gaps – Gender and Race in Nonprofit Boardrooms
The Women’s Nonprofit Leadership Initiative and The Nonprofit Center at La Salle University are proud to release their second triennial report on board diversity in the largest medical and educational institutions in Greater Philadelphia. This the first report on area board diversity based primarily on information from the institutions themselves.
This report expands on our 2019 report, The Gender Gap in Nonprofit Boardrooms, and commends the institutions that have shown significant progress in the last three years. But it also points out the work required for many of these boards in order to reflect the diversity of their staffs, students, patients, and the communities they serve, and to give more women and people of color the opportunity to become board chairs.
