Catching A Unicorn, with Jermaine Smith

Catching A Unicorn

How do you stop and have that first conversation about diversifying your board? A candid Conversation with Jermaine Smith, Vice President of Major Gifts at City Year, Jermaine and Mickey talk about what it means to diversity a nonprofit board of directors, the challenges and difficulties experienced by both the board and potential board recruits. We address the following:

  1. Perform a diversity audit and embrace where you need growth.
  2. Integrate diversity into your organization-wide strategic plan.
  3. Recruit for skills – not for “the look.”
