The 2019 session of the Arts + Business Council’s Business on Board is underway, and this year brings the most diverse class of business leaders.

In its 23rd year, Business on Board is the only program in Greater Philadelphia dedicated to promoting good leadership and governance to the nonprofit arts and cultural sector, going as far as directly matching and placing skilled leaders with the arts and cultural organization that needs them most.

Participants are prepared over the course of four day-long sessions held over a four-month period, featuring presentations by highly qualified for-profit and nonprofit consultants, professionals, BOB alumni, and members of the arts and cultural community. Classroom instruction is enhanced by the unique learning experience of observing a board in action for the duration of the program.

The cohort includes both prospective and current board members of a variety of nonprofit cultural organizations. Prospective board members are matched to an arts organization to observe over the course of the program, while current members bring their gained knowledge back to their boards.

This year, Knight Foundation, Carole Haas Gravagno Charitable Trust, Connelly Foundation, and PNC Arts Alive have supported our cohort, providing full-tuition scholarships to multiple applicants. Knight Foundation alone has provided 8 full-tuition Diversity Scholarships for the program, resulting in Business on Board’s most diverse cohort to date. This dedication to diversity addresses the evolving demographic changes in our region, and is fundamental to the growth and sustainability of the nonprofit cultural organizations in Greater Philadelphia.

We’re proud to introduce the 2019 Business on Board cohort.
