BOLD is Greater Cincinnati’s leading nonprofit board training program. Our purpose is to provide a transformational board leadership development experience to educate and empower local leaders to serve boldly.
BOLD is building a stronger community of diverse leaders prepared to serve nonprofit boards.
Engaged community leaders interested in board service
Current board members looking for more education
Prepare participants for meaningful nonprofit board service
Connect diverse leaders to a network of more than 200 local nonprofits and hundreds of BOLD alumni
Advance company goals through leadership development, diversity and inclusion, recruitment and retention, sustainability, and corporate responsibility
Strengthen the community through a commitment of inclusive and diverse nonprofit board leadership
The six-week virtual curriculum consists of the following sessions:
Board Basics and Character Strengths
Legal and Fiduciary Responsibilities
Strategic Planning for Nonprofit Boards
Fundraising and Nonprofit Boards
Board Composition and Cultural Competency
Succession Planning and Assessment
Each session is designed to help participants gain a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a nonprofit board member. The program will provide application-based learning and interaction with thought leaders from the Cincinnati community and beyond.
The Zoom meetings will be supplemented by online training through our learning management platform, Bridge. Weekly modules are assigned to participants within Bridge. Participants are responsible for completing these modules on their own time. This virtual format allows learners flexibility to participate from home or the workplace.
