The DiverseCity onBoard board matching service is for visible minorities and underrepresented immigrants so that their systemic underrepresentation on nonprofit boards and public agencies, boards and commissions of the municipal, provincial and federal governments can be redressed.
Why should this interest you?
Serving on a board gives individuals from visible minority and underrepresented immigrant communities the opportunity to engage at a senior level. Boards become a forum to cultivate new personal and professional networks. Moreover, DiverseCity onBoard provides training in governance through an online learning campus supplemented by in-person discussions and events.
In less than a decade, the program has evolved to become the “go-to” program for diverse individuals and organizations seeking diverse leadership. You always wanted to give back to society. Here’s your chance to.
The program has facilitated more than 750 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.
If you are eligible, these are the steps you must take to participate in the program:
Stage One: Registration and Training
Stage Two: Matching and follow-up
At this stage, you will be able to view available board vacancies and postings, as well as a ranked list of opportunities that have been matched to your profile, experience, and interests.
You will be able to bookmark these positions, or communicate directly with the organization through DiverseCity onBoard either by applying to positions of interest, or requesting additional information via email.
