Retaining Board Members and Utilizing Exit Interviews
In addition to board member recruitment, retention is an important piece of board inclusiveness.
Monitor your retention rates, considering how the retention of board members of color compares to that of white board members. Also, continue to communicate with board members about your organization's needs, and about the board members' experiences with your organization.
When individuals leave your board, it is often helpful to conduct exit interviews to further assess your organization's progress related to inclusiveness. For more information about exit interviews, look to Personnel.
