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?   Are you looking to be a part of a board/committee?

We need you to help us make inclusion a reality!

We are recruiting established immigrants who live on the North Shore to join boards of directors and citizen advisory committees of local non-profits and government organizations.

The project is focused improving the representation of immigrants in leadership roles on the North Shore and support long-term systemic change.

Training, networking, matching, orientation, and mentoring are provided.

Interviews are taking place now!
