Cognitive diversity, also known as diversity of thought can simply be defined as inclusion of people who have different information processing styles or problem-solving skills and who can offer unique perspectives because they think differently. 

Boards that are diverse are creative, innovative and they encourage greater consideration of alternatives while providing access to a wider range of information and perspectives.  There are many reasons why people sit on boards.  In this interactive workshop, you will learn: 

  1. Advantages of sitting at the board table 
  2. What participating on not-for-profit boards involves 
  3. How to decide which board to join
  4. Whether you have what it takes to be on a board
