Course Detail: DE056 - Building a Community Advisory Board (CAB)
Establishing Community Advisory Boards (CABs) is a strategy in building a more equitable organization, while being held accountable to the communities most impacted by organizational practices. While there could be multiple purposes for a CAB, it primarily serves as an alternate governing body to ensure community voice in planning, implementation and review of services.
This 90-minute workshop is a space for organizational leaders to begin exploring the ways a CAB can further their agency's racial equity work.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Assess whether their organization is equipped to launch a CAB
- Create a working template for a CAB charter
- Map out the process of developing, recruiting and sustaining a CAB
