Board Engagement


  • July 21, 2022
  • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The board of directors is the governing body of a nonprofit organization and members are responsible for overseeing the organization’s strategic implementation of activities and financial viability. Having an engaged board who understands the programs and finances ensures strategic decisions are well informed. Engagement will vary for each board and for each board member. This workshop will share key reasons why board members disengage and various approaches to keeping them committed and active. Attendees will leave with an increased understanding of what engagement approaches are appropriate for their board and tools to engage their board members more effectively. This training is open to all but is designed for Board Chairs or members of the committees dedicated to board engagement.

This webinar will have closed captioning available through the online service

I have spent my career working and consulting in the nonprofit sector in the Twin Cities. I began as a Paralegal at Southern MN Regional Legal Services, then Foundation Relations Manager at Greater Twin Cities United Way, and most recently, the Executive Director at Minnesota Women’s Consortium. My consulting practice focused on identity-driven leadership, culturally-affirming nonprofit management and inclusion initiatives, and prioritized people of color-led organizations including Mu Performing Arts, Centro Tyrone Guzman, Hmong Cultural Center, The Power of People Leadership Institute, and Hnub Tshiab: Hmong Women Achieving Together. I’ve served on nonprofit boards for over ten years and am currently serving on Streets Stops and Mountain Tops and Southeast Asian Resource Action Center. I’m also an adjunct instructor in the Organizational Leadership graduate program at St. Catherine University. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration; Masters’ Degrees in Organizational Leadership and in Human and Organizational Systems; and am pursuing my Ph.D. in Organizational Development and Change. I am a former refugee, single parent to two young adults, and enjoy movies, traveling, and reading.
