DiverseCity onBoard’s matching database is designed to connect you, the nonprofit or charitable organization, or an agency of the municipal, provincial and federal government with screened, qualified, and trained individuals who are ready to serve in various roles on your governance boards and committees today.
Our system allows you to create your organizational profile, post your board vacancies, and then generates matches based on your criteria and requirements.
Why board diversity?
A board that reflects the diversity of people it serves is seen as more authentic and responsive to community needs. Research has also shown that diverse leadership within communities tends to improve social cohesion, enhances the sense of belonging and ensures more civic participation, which in turn leads to healthier communities and more effective organizations.
More diversity equals better governance. Diversifying a nonprofit or public board has clear advantages.
The program has facilitated more than 700 board appointments and over 650 organizations and 1,700 individuals are registered on its database. Over 1,450 board positions have been posted so far. In 2011, the program was recognized as a leader in its field with an Intercultural Innovation Award by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and the BMW Group.
