How do you ensure a diverse board?

All board members must be fully committed to the concept of a diverse and representative board. If necessary this may need work on changing the culture of the organisation and its board, in which case a game plan needs to be drawn up and the item kept on board agendas until realised. Consideration should be given to the practices of the board: time and place of meetings, whether younger members require shorter terms of office, guidance on claiming out-of-pocket expenses etc. Retention of new trustees is as important as recruitment: it is essential that any training needs are met and the new experience and knowledge they bring are fully used.
