Even with the best of intentions, identifying and recruiting a diverse leadership slate can be a tough job, particularly without in-person networking. But ensuring you’re bringing an array of experiences and perspectives has never been more important, for reasons of ethics and the health of your organization. What can you do right now to start laying track to recruit the leaders of tomorrow? What can you do in the short-term to improve an incoming leadership slate that isn’t as diverse as it should be? 

Our agenda:

The first hour: High level framing of the issue. Learn what the data is saying and key concepts, including the shape of the current environment and the importance of this issue within it. Q & A discussion.

The second hour:  A case study interview with special guest(s) who have successfully navigated this issue, with Q & A 

The third hour: Now that you've done a deep-dive on the issue and heard examples of successful implementation, it's time to collaborate with your peers and plot your solutions. Participate in a break-out discussion around this topic in your organization. Hear what's working (or not!) for others. All solutions will be collected and shared with attendees after the event.

You can also expect several interactive polls, breaks for you to check on family/work, and the opportunity to connect with fellow attendees.  

Attendees will receive:

  • Complimentary Looking Forward Dashboard Access - The Looking Forward Dashboard is the association sector's most comprehensive source for primary association sector research. You can review the most recent and useful association sector research on the factors impacting members, the challenges they create and the solutions pursued by associations to adapt. Customize the data to your needs and download a report to guide discussions with your staff and volunteer leadership.
  • Free White Paper: Leading Strategic Change in Associations - This research-based, peer-driven white paper outlines recommendatoins from 25 CEOs on how to successfully lead strategic change.
  • CAE Credit - Certificate for one CAE credit (live attendance required)

Register for three "Looking Forward Together" workshops and one of them is free, or join us for six workshops and receive two free. Or better yet, join us for all nine and receive three free! Any senior member of your team may register and last-minute transfers are no problem. Life is complicated enough right now, we want this to be easy. Contact Miranda and with any questions.
