THURSDAY @11 am EDT: LaDonna Sanders Redmond leads our discussion about inclusive cooperative governance


As cooperatives consider how to better define and amplify their cooperative identity, the composition of cooperative boards is growing in importance. The diversity of board members, in particular, is attracting enormous interest. Still, conversations around co-op governance tend to be biased toward the past (an organization’s founders) rather than the future (an organization’s present-day community).

Join us on Thursday, March 31 at 11 am EDT to consider what a redesign of cooperative governance could look like. What if we focused on the board of director experience and strategic role, with an emphasis on delivering inclusive economies and embodying cooperative values?
