*Changing the Subject: Boards as Social Movement Spaces
Event Category 


The Latin root word for governance is gubernare, which means to guide or pilot a ship. Governance is typically demonstrated by a collective group of people tasked with guiding an organization in alignment with its mission, vision, and values. Social movements are also a type of group action where groups of individuals or organizations focus on specific political or social issues to spark change.  

In this webinar, consultants Jenifer Gager Holland and Makiyah Moody will be joined by Dr. Carmen Rojas, president of the Marguerite Casey Foundation, to explore how boards can become more liberatory spaces by applying a social movement ethos and purpose-driven board leadership to unlock stifled potential.
