Join our Executive Director Chitra Aiyar at Koya's Conversation on Board Diversity & Equity


As social justice leaders respond to the current political and social moment, diversity, inclusivity, and equity in organizational leadership and governance is more important than ever. Building off of their research paper, The Governance Gap: Examining Diversity and Equity in Nonprofit Boards of Directors, Koya Leadership Partners has curated a select group of leaders who have effectively built and retained diverse boards of directors to share their learnings.

Koya invites you to learn and explore with us through a thoughtful panel discussion and networking with peer social justice organizations, funders, and board members.

Melissa Madzel, Vice President, Koya Leadership Partners, will moderate this conversation with:

  • Angela Dorn, Chief Operating Officer & General Council, Youth INC

  • Chitra Aiyar, Executive Director, Sadie Nash Leadership Project

  • Molly Brennan, Founding Partner and Executive Vice President, Koya Leadership Partners

  • Raël Nelson James, Director, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, The Bridgespan Group

  • Richard Burns, Interim Chief Executive Officer, Lambda Legal
