This “state of the art” governance capacity-building training series will provide your board members with innovative, best practices; concrete strategies for integrating a racial equity lens in your governance practices; and tools to help strengthen your Board’s effectiveness and ability to impact your community.   This series is specifically designed for CDC boards, helping them engage more directly with, and become more accountable to the diverse communities they serve. This highly experiential training will be offered to 3‐5 CDCs who will work together as board teams, along with their Executive Directors. Participation includes two full-day training sessions, a board self-assessment, and one hour of coaching between sessions.

Judy is an amazing trainer/facilitator! She is terrific! “
