Associations' board diversity challenge
from Associations Now
In an ASAE benchmarking study, 77 percent of boards reported having no voting members under the age of 30; 39 percent had no board members of ethnic or minority groups; 7 percent had no female members. The research also shows that only 19 percent of associations have a written diversity policy for board members, and that the lack of ethnic diversity is more pronounced at smaller organizations and trade associations. But if we know anything about diversity, we know that numbers aren’t everything.
