Ensuring Board
Engagement

Over the years I have frequently heard Executive Directors and board chairs share their disappointment over poorly performing board members. The complaints typically focus on board members who consistently engage in low attendance at board meetings, offer inadequate participation in important discussions, avoid committee or special project responsibilities and, worst of all, exhibit low energy and lack of passion for the mission.
Client Spotlight is on Sakhi
Since it opened its doors over 11 years ago, Sakhi for South Asian Women has represented the South Asian diaspora , including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, the West Indies, and Africa, in a survivor-led movement for gender justice. Launched by a team of five South Asian women—Anannya Bhattacharjee, Mallika Dutt, Tula Goenka, Geetanjali Misra, and Romita Shett, Sakhi (which translates to “woman friend”) has steadfastly remained committed to supporting survivors and their children through a combination of holistic, integrated efforts including—but not limited to—direct services, advocacy and organizing, technical assistance, and community outreach.
