3. Develop Inclusive Governance Policies and Practices

No matter how much assessment you have done, there is always an opportunity to develop a greater level of inclusion on your board. This section outlines what to consider when you develop inclusive governance policies and practices. It builds on your board work and understanding of diversity and invites you to think about how your policies and practices build inclusion. This is a dynamic and continuous process.

Once your policies are in place, it’s essential to review them regularly to ensure that new people are consistently brought into the conversation. You should also review your practices on a regular basis through a diversity, equity and inclusion lens.
