NONPROFIT BOARD GOVERNANCE: BARRIERS TO MILLENNIAL AND RACIAL MINORITY DIVERSITY IN BOARD SERVICEAndersson, Lynne Mary; Wray, Matt, 1964-; Deckop, John Raymond; Williams, Wayne W. (Temple University. Libraries, 2020)Nonprofits need dedicated people to meet the mission of the organization and to address the social and societal conditions they were established to address. How are nonprofit organizations cultivating the next generation of leaders? With five generations of workers in the workplace, the field for new, nonprofit, board-level volunteers is large. However, research shows that young professionals and marginalized racial minorities are underrepresented or not represented in this area. Why is this our current reality and what is hindering the service of these leaders on nonprofit boards? This dissertation examines the role of representation in generational and racial terms on the board of directors of nonprofit organizations in South Carolina.
