The experience of PRESIDE has fundamentally reset what we would have otherwise thought possible in terms of pursuing our mission.
The PRESIDE program has been like getting a master’s degree in board governance through a Jewish lens!
PRESIDE provided the focus needed to continue to move forward strategically. As a direct result of our PRESIDE work, the intersection of the BSA, triad coaching, and webinar content, our Board [has been] transformed.
Cohort members begin with the BoardSource Self- Assessment, then work to elevate governance practices to enhance their board engagement and operations.
Participants develop a clear understanding of their strengths and deficits, along with the tools to implement change and become more impactful leaders.
Participants explore the language and application of Jewish values (middot) so that they can view their governance and leadership through a Jewish lens.
Each team will benefit from twice-monthly coaching, designed to meet them where they are, address current needs and maximize positive change.
More than just a matching gift, the challenge grant presents the opportunity to apply learning from the PRESIDE curriculum to an initiative that ensures organizational sustainability. The chair and chair-elect, in consultation with the CEO, will lead the organization in the selection of one or more projects for a capacity-building matching challenge grant.
