Smith, Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director of Cabinet Affairs for My Brother’s Keeper at the White House, will share his insights as a man of color in the social sector and the difference a diverse and inclusive board can make in the community.
Austin Mayor Steve Adler will provide welcome remarks, and GivingCity founder, Monica Maldonado Williams, will lead a Q&A session with Smith. The event will be held at KLRU’s historic Studio 6A on the UT-Austin campus.
The event is part of the New Philanthropists Speaker Series, intended to stir the conversation around racial diversity of nonprofit boards. The first event of this series happened on July 28, 2015, and featured nine local panelists from leading social and civic organizations offering their takes on the state of diversity and what nonprofit boards can do about it. See some of their recommendations here, “8 Ways to Increase Board Diversity.”
