Meet Your Match… at Nonprofit Speed Dating

Boards-by-Design is hosting a ”Nonprofit Speed Dating” event in conjunction with the New Trustees for a New Pittsburgh.

An innovative and comprehensive nonprofit board-matching program, Boards-by-Design is designed to benefit nonprofits, businesses and individuals by connecting nonprofit organizations with qualified board candidates. 

Similar to actual speed dating, individual nonprofit representatives and potential board candidates will sit with each other during this event for five-minute increments to learn more about each other.  When the bell rings after five minutes, the individual candidates will move to the next table with a nonprofit representative.  The candidates and nonprofits will find out the next day how many “matches” were made during the speed-dating event.

Nonprofits attending the speed-dating event include the American Liver Foundation, Crisis Center North, Junior Achievement, Pittsburgh CLO, Sarah Heinz House and the Wilkins School Community Center, among others.

Boards-by-Design works to help organizations diversify the age, race, gender and physical abilities of board members. Boards-by-Design is a program of the Nonprofit Leadership Institute in the School of Leadership and Professional Advancement at Duquesne University.

Bossa Nova, 123 Seventh St., Downtown
