Do you believe in the transformative power of art and community to create change? Are you a committed individual who values centering the voices, cultures, imaginations, knowledge, and leadership of people of color (POC)? If so, we invite you to explore the possibility of LP board service!
In addition to the standard responsibilities of a board member, such as governance, strategic planning, and resource generation, The LP’s board members are active strategists and ambassadors for the organization. They are committed to leveraging their skills, resources, and networks to effectively execute The LP mission and expand our impact. Through this opportunity, board members can be part of a meaningful collective team effort; make a positive difference in the lives and communities of New Yorkers, join an extended network of diverse, passionate artists, neighbors, and colleagues; and expand personal knowledge and expertise in cultural, social justice, and nonprofit fields. Board members make The LP a significant personal priority and help strengthen our financial and community base.
We currently have limited openings. We welcome all backgrounds, skills, and experiences, with a special interest in the following:
- Community Development / Equitable Urban Development
- Community Health & Wellness
- Community Organizing / Movement Building
- Finance, Investments & Business Development
- Marketing & Public Relations
- Strategic Partnerships
As an organization committed to fostering diversity of all kinds, we welcome and encourage interested parties of all racial, ethnic, and gender identities/expressions; parties identifying as LGBTQIA+, disabled, im/migrants, parents, Gen Z to Baby Boomers, and others who bring a rich variety of perspectives.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete the Board Interest Form below by August 31, 2020.
