North Shore Board and Committee Diversity Project

Introducing the North Shore Board & Committee Diversity Project

Are you looking to increase diversity on your board/committee/working group?

We are looking to recruit 10-15 established immigrants who live on the North Shore from countries including but not limited to Iran, China, Philippines, and South Korea. 

The Project is focused on matching established immigrants with positions on boards of directors and citizen advisory committees of non-profit agencies and municipal government bodies across the North Shore. Through this, we hope to improve the representation of immigrants in leadership roles on the North Shore and support long-term systemic change.

We need organizations and potential board/committee members to help us make inclusion a reality!

We offer training, networking, orientation and mentoring.

Research has shown that creating a place for immigrant inclusion in your governance structure strengthens community and positively contributes to your financial bottom line.

Interviews are taking place now!
