Board Composition: A Time of Reckoning, A Time of Opportunity

This thoughtful post by Alison Taylor made me pause and reflect on my thirty-year engagement with boards of directors, first with nonprofit boards and thereafter, with for-profit boards. Boards have the authority and power to improve or diminish their organizations and companies, and to fundamentally affect the social, economic, and environmental well-being of the world. 

Innovative Approaches to Nonprofit Board Matching 

For thirty years, Korngold has led the way–assisting multinational corporations in building nonprofit board training and matching programs to advance sustainability, diversity and inclusion, innovation, and leadership development.

DEI Consulting

Korngold Consulting has been at the forefront driving nonprofit board diversity, equity, and inclusion for thirty years. Transforming board composition to be more diverse and inclusive has been fundamental to the organization’s board training, consulting, and matching services, as well as articles and books, since 1993. 

We are fortunate to have Olufunmilayo (Funmi) Arewa, author of Disrupting Africa: Law, Technology, and Development join us to provide these services.

  • Board assessments: Conducting a uniquely effective board assessment and planning process for nonprofits seeking to achieve greater aspirations.
  • Board composition: Providing guidance and recommending board candidates for nonprofits to build highly qualified, diverse and inclusive boards.
  • Leadership transitions: Assisting boards in facilitating leadership succession.

Alice Korngold is amazing at understanding the needs of various stakeholders and bringing them together to create impactful partnerships and outcomes. She was invaluable in helping me find a Board role that aligned with my passions and fulfilled the need on the Board. Her connections across industries was on full display as she provided several options that worked well for all involved. I was paired with a Board in record time, and even made strong connections with organizations that I ultimately did not join. I would recommend Alice for anyone looking to join a non-profit Board. She is insightful, connected and focused—a winning combination. Thanks, Alice!

Korngold Consulting matched me to the perfect board, based on my interests and areas of expertise, and the nonprofit’s needs. They led me through a thoughtful and thorough process, analyzing boards and organizations that could be a good fit, presenting me with options, and then ultimately placing me on the perfect board for me. Alice and her team followed up thoughtfully to ensure that the experience was a great one. It’s only been a short time and already I feel engaged and enthusiastic about the work I’m doing with this nonprofit board.

Alice Korngold is a terrific person – thoughtful, wise, connected, inclusive, and personable! An absolute gem. Alice has guest lectured to my Harvard governance students twice and they were thrilled. With ease, Alice adeptly tackled global problems students raised such as health, education, poverty, climate change, demographics and more, with hands on examples of what the best companies and boards in the world are doing, drawn from years of research and practice. It was a thrill to have Alice guest lecture and to know her. I highly recommend this authentic, talented and very nice person for any board work, advising, speaking or consulting. Highly recommend!
