April Board Leadership Roundtable: Leading Changes as a Board Member

 Executive Director & Board Relationships

**New Date & Time will be determined for late Summer/early Fall**

CHANGE! What makes change so threatening? Maybe because change causes transition, and transition starts with an ending, as William Bridges said. But it also opens possibility, creativity and life. 

It is important that board members show up as their best leader-ful selves to support or lead organizations through times of change and transition. Join NorCAN for April’s Board Leadership Roundtable where we’ll explore organizational change from a governance perspective.

Cultural Humility for Organizations

With Meridith Oram

Friday, June 19, 2020 (9:00am-2:00pm)

Many organizations over the years have focused on ensuring that their staff and boards are culturally competent. However competency implies finite learning - a certain level of sufficiency in knowledge and skills that allows one to be deemed 'culturally competent'. Given the many different identities, communities, cultures, ethnicities, faiths, races, and experiences that people have, it is impossible for someone to actually be 'culturally competent' to all people and communities.

An alternative approach is cultural humility, a lifelong learning practice that honors other people's and communities' expertise in their own experiences.

Materials, Coffee, Tea & Lunch Provided
