Board Networking Fair Feb. 21, 2019

For non-profit organizations seeking to diversify their boards and volunteers, a unique opportunity comes on February 21 at 5 p.m. at the Bloomington-Normal YWCA, 1201 N. Hershey Road, Bloomington, Illinois.

The Multicultural Leadership Program (MCLP) is sponsoring a networking event, where non-profit organizations can quickly meet the participants in this year’s MCLP class.  Agencies will have an opportunity to present their current board, committee, or volunteer opportunities to these passionate leaders and professionals. They will rotate between tables throughout the hour.

“Diversity is something local boards are always seeking,” said MCLP Community Involvement Team Chair Kristin Manzi.  “MCLP encourages graduates toward community involvement, so this is a perfect way for our 2019 class and local non-profits to get acquainted and see if their passions mesh.”

Non-profits must register in advance at Space is limited.  

MCLP is an intense professional leadership development curriculum which provides a framework for current and potential leaders to improve their leadership skills. The core components of the MCLP curriculum are:

  • to develop servant leadership skills (enabling others to become capable, wise, and better leaders)
  • to become more self-aware and grow as a leader
  • to develop authentic relationships
  • to foster diversity inclusion (welcoming, engaging, and including diverse perspectives)
  • to make a positive impact
