Knowing When to Lean In and Out: Drawing the Distinction between Governance and Management in the Providence Foundation Board

That line between governance and management can often be very thin and too easy to cross. This presentation will help board members understand the difference, making that line harder to step over. Areas to be covered: the role of management, the role of the board, and understanding the overarching questions that will clarify these roles.

November 8, 12:00 - 1:00 PM

Implicit Bias Educational Session

As part of our Board Enrichment opportunities, we offered two Implicit Bias Education Sessions on November 1st and November 2nd. We plan to offer these sessions annually.
Below is a brief background on the commitment Providence has to this education. While these are typically offered to caregivers we believe it is important to extend this offering to our board members.

In 2021, Providence launched an Implicit Bias course for caregivers. It was developed to provide leaders with an understanding of different biases that occur in the workplace, while providing practical strategies to respond to biases that are grounded in our organizational Mission and Values. Learning objectives for the course involve participants being able to walk away from the course knowing:

• The definitions of diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI), and microaggressions
• Common types of bias and microaggressions
• How to respond to biased behavior
• How to support those who experience this bias
