Interested to hear from organizations who have or are interested in having representation from the communities you serve on your board. This could be mandated (for many HRDCs or CLTs) or opt-in, or a decision of the board.

What isn’t?
What are barriers?
What are solutions?

Where are you on this path? Is there resistance or excitement? What does it add to the board dynamic?
