Running Impactful and Inclusive Board Meetings
Presented by Renee Rubin Ross, Ph.D. , Founder, The Ross Collective

Dr. Renee Rubin Ross will take a deep dive into managing productive meetings, from pre-planning through execution.
Participants will learn about:
- How to design strategic agendas to keep meetings on track
- Participation and leadership styles to maximize contributions
- Methods for building relationships among board members
- How to infuse equity for all in formal and informal meetings
