This week Philamplify is introducing a new poll question, our third since we launched philamplify.org in May:
Do you think greater staff and board diversity helps make foundations more effective and impactful? (Yes/No/Maybe)
We were prompted to ask this question in part by the recent announcement that Guidestar and the D5 Coalition have joined together to enhance the Guidestar Exchange as a tool for online tracking of nonprofit and foundation diversity data. In announcing the new initiative, Kelly Brown at D5 and Jacob Harold at Guidestar each made comments linking diversity data to improved effectiveness and impact.
