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
