Mr. Kelley Dunne

Term:

Since Jan 2011

Profile:

Kelley Dunne, Chief Executive Officer of One Economy has more than 20 years of experience in the telecommunications industry and is recognized as an industry pioneer in deploying some of the first 4G broadband wireless capacities across the country. Kelley's career journey has always been grounded in his deep sense of purpose. His unique combination of telecommunications expertise, business acumen and commitment to service will allow One Economy to expand its impact in underserved communities around the world. Prior to joining One Economy as CEO, Kelley was the founder and CEO of Digital Bridge Communications Corporation, a provider of broadband wireless to small and medium-sized communities. He has also held leadership positions with One Point Communications, AT&T Bell Labs and Verizon, where he launched Verizon's Rural Broadband Initiative, leading some of the most innovative broadband wireless deployments in rural markets, Native American reservations, low-income housing areas and U.S. military bases. Kelley who grew up in a military family also served in the U.S. Army Signal Corps as both an enlisted service member and an officer. Kelley received his BS degree in Communications Systems Management from Ohio University and his MS degree in Information and Communications Sciences from Ball State University. He lives in Virginia with his wife and three daughters.

Leadership Statement:

Since founding One Economy in 2000, we have focused on building an organization that applies the innovations of the Digital Age to the issues of isolation and poverty. The unique aspect of One Economy is that we use technology as a tool to augment and enhance existing systems and community development activities to better support the needs and potential of low-income people. One Economy’s approach is distinctive because we use a three-step strategy that ensures information is available, accessible, and relevant. We work with local housing agencies, municipal governments, and Internet service providers to make technology available to people in the comfort of their homes; we train youth as Digital Connectors who act as technology ambassadors in their community; and we create public-purpose media that is culturally relevant and presented at a level which is understandable to everyone in society. Our belief is that through innovative use of the Internet and by partnering with local nonprofit organizations who are already serving low-income people, we can break through the barriers caused by the social and economic isolation of poverty. The Internet is ideal because it connects. It connects people to services. It connects government to its constituency. Through the power of technology, the barriers of time, place, and inconvenience can be overcome.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided
