For Board Members Only: Understanding the Board’s Roles and Responsibilities in DEIJ Work 
Typically (but not always!) the staff of an organization is farther along in their DEIJ journeys than their Boards of Directors. As the entity with the most power at a non-profit organization, the Board of Directors can make meaningful changes, both internally and externally, to ensure DEIJ best practices are woven throughout the mission, vision, values and day-to-day work. This workshop will offer peer-to-peer perspectives on what DEIJ looks like at the environmental and conservation organizational Board level, along with specific action steps for making sustainable changes and impact. This training is open only to people who serve as board members at organizations within the Delaware River Watershed.
 
Date: Thursday, February 2 – 1:00 – 2:30pm
Identify-Specific Discussion Groups: Monday, February 6 – 1:00 – 2:30pm
