NPHC SEPA Members tapped for board governance program
The National Pan Hellenic Council of Southeastern Pennsylvania would like to congratulate the members of its respective chapters on acceptance into the DiverseForce of Boards Training Program. DiverseForce on Boards trains mid- to senior-level professionals on the ins and outs of nonprofit board leadership over seven months in partnership with Penn’s College of Liberal and Professional Studies and ImpactED.
DiverseForce on Boards (DFOB), named for its partnership with Sulaiman Rahman’s workforce diversity consulting company, DiverseForce, the program specifically trains mid- to senior-level professionals of color on the ins and outs of nonprofit board leadership over seven months. Participants are matched with board placement opportunities at the end of the program.
DFOB is housed by the University of Pennsylvania’s College of Liberal and Professional Studies while continuing to work in partnership with social impact evaluation and development org ImpactED, Rahman said.
“In addition to the comprehensive board governance training and matching program, we have added a structured leadership lunch and learn series that will provide our cohort participants with the critical leadership competencies that will help them to serve on boards more effectively, and will be transferable to their personal and professionals lives,” the founder wrote in an email.
