Diversifying Recruitment: An organization’s culture is only as strong as its commitment to its workforce, and as public gardens start to create a culture of inclusivity we need to learn how to support our new workforce. How can we attract and hire diverse candidates to open positions? More importantly, how do we ensure we are creating supportive environments for the people we hire?

In this Café, join our panel of executive directors and board members for a thoughtful discussion about approaching and prioritizing board diversification, identifying and navigating barriers to allow diversification to happen, and identifying and supporting new board members without tokenization.

Watch this IDEA Café to reflect on lessons learned from 2022. Hear from panelists at various gardens as they share about successful aspects of IDEA efforts, strategies that we want to improve, and everything in between.
