Will NCARB consider altering its leadership structure to allow for greater diversity?

To address the NCARB volunteer leadership culture, NCARB’s volunteer-led Diversity Collaborative Task Force is in the process of drafting suggestions for adjustments to the leadership path that will help further support equity, diversity, and inclusion within our volunteer and leadership structure. We hope these efforts will result in increased diversity in our Board and larger volunteer community not only in terms of race, but also in age, gender, background, education, experience, and more.

While appreciative that we have more work to do, we're excited to share that our next incoming president, Alfred Vidaurri, will be the first Latino president in NCARB’s history. In addition, four of our six regional chairs are now filled by women which will lead to increased gender diversity in the short term.
