Diversity & Inclusion Among Advisory Membership

Looking to increase your success in attracting and retaining diverse volunteers for your Advisory Councils or Boards of Directors in Cooperative Extension? From creating an inclusive environment to understanding volunteer motivations and barriers, we’ll explore special considerations for diverse volunteers and for potential decision-making volunteers. Look at demographics to understand your diverse community populations and find under-represented areas. Get prepared to welcome diverse volunteers into your committees and to keep them. Together we’ll consider some new approaches to recruiting all volunteers from the latest resources and from what you’ve learned recruiting diverse volunteers to Cooperative Extension.
