Orange County Regional History Center - 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.
