Throughout this toolkit, we have referred to the importance of open conversation to create a culture of inclusion. We acknowledge, however, that every governance board may be at a different place on their journey, and may have different levels of inclusion. Starting that conversation may be easier for some boards than for others.
How do you have conversations that will support your governance board to move forward? This process can be challenging, especially as you strategize about where to start, and how to have your initial conversation.
