Global Peace Film Festival - Diverse Leadership Pipeline 

 

To address board vacancies and succession at our region’s nonprofit arts and cultural organizations, United Arts created the Diverse Leadership Pipeline to help the entire arts and cultural sector recruit new members.
This program will help connect individuals who may be a good match based on their interests and skill sets, with local arts and cultural nonprofit organizations. It’s designed to help ensure the leadership of Central Florida’s arts and cultural community reflects its diverse population. Without diverse people included in the decision-making process of our boards, we will not reach our vision that all people of Central Florida have access to the arts.
1. Review the cultural organizations’ profiles below, and then 2. Complete the application at the bottom of this page or on the organization’s profile page!

If your nonprofit arts and/or cultural organization would like to be included, please reach out to Sean Thurman, Marketing & Communications Director at United Arts: Sean@UnitedArts.cc.

About

We are currently in need of a lawyer on the board. Board members do not have to have entertainment or film industry ties/experience (liking film, particularly documentary, is helpful!). Diversity is very important and the board is currently 50% non-white. For the first time, the board is no longer majority female! (currently 5 male, 3 female).

  • There is a give/get/work requirement that depends on the means and capacity of each board member. In-kind services are most welcome.
  • Nominations accepted year-round. Election at quarterly board meetings.
  • 2 x 3 year terms
  • Board meets at least quarterly. Other commitments are attendance at screenings and events, inviting friends/family/colleagues to screenings and events.
  • As a small board, there is only the Executive Committee made up of the officers of the board.

Mission

The Global Peace Film Festival uses creative media as a catalyst to inspire and educate people to initiate positive change in their local communities and worldwide. Watch Films. Get Involved. Change Things. Rather than a passive experience, GPFF aims for the festival to motivate people to make the large or small, but always important changes to improve their lives and those of their neighbors.
