Hope: There are few other words more important than hope. It can make the difference between overcoming or being overcome, moving forward or shrinking back, believing life can be better or falling into despair. Hope changes things.
The problem with hope is that it is very difficult to measure on a graph. Therefore, hope rarely makes it onto an annual report or data analysis sheet. Yet, it is a critical ingredient to the success of many nonprofits. My guest today is PeterGreer, President and CEO of HOPE International a global, faith-based, micro-enterprise development organization serving throughout Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. Enjoy today’s show!

Diversity on Nonprofit Boards – According to a survey by BoardSource, a research and support organization for nonprofit boards, 25% of boards are all white, and only 20% of board members are people of color. Yet, most nonprofit leaders and board chairs desire to have boards that are more diverse–not only racially, but in terms of gender, socioeconomic status, age, and experience. In order to reconcile this desire with reality, creating intentional plans for diversifying nonprofit boards is essential. Further, we know that boards–and teams–that are more diverse actually perform better, so how can nonprofits take intentional steps to diversify their boards?
