Have you read these fantastic resources about diversity on boards?
In preparation for the next Unconvention on Tuesday, 9 August, I’ve put together a collection of recent resources that will be pertinent to our event theme. There are a few tickets left for this event which you can register for here.
Dr Nicky Howe and I have collated our learnings from the past four years with the Engaging Young Leaders on Aged Care and Community Boards program along with the latest research to present a book that was published by Major Street Publishing in May this year.
This ebook profiles a range of experienced chairpersons with WA who have led diverse and effective boards. It ensures their lessons on leadership and facilitation can be shared.
This ebook profiles a range of NFP directors in the WA community to understand their perspectives on diversity – its meaning to them and their Boards, and its place on WA NFP boards more broadly.
Leading for Changes starts the conversation about improvement the representation of cultural diversity within Australian leadership. It provides guidance for how organisations can nurture leadership that is fit for our multicultural society and our global economy.
OMI Publication – Diversifying boards – Your cultural advantage
This guide includes information about boards and what being a board member involves. It also includes case studies of people from a wide range of backgrounds who have become members of different types of boards. Some were born in Australia of migrant parents. Most came to Australia as migrants. They represent countries and cultures form across the world.
I hope you find these useful reading.
