Black Board of Directors Projects aims to increase diversity

The Phoenix-based Black Board of Directors Project has been working for nearly 35 years in the state to increase diversity on boards of directors in the nonprofit arena and private and public sectors. “We found that there is a paucity of diversity on a lot of boards and commissions and that is because the number of people known out there is very thin,” said founder Marvin Perry. The Black Board of Directors Project has helped more than 850 people advance their careers by matching skills and experience with boards. Read the original story from AZBigMedia.
