?

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?

Program Description:

Daya's Education and Outreach Program aims to engage and empower communities to address the issue of domestic violence. Given that domestic violence is a social problem that requires community-based strategies, Daya is dedicated to extending our services beyond the walls of our office, transitional home and boundaries of our client services programs. Daya's Education and Outreach program provides support, education and resources to individuals, families, community advocates, professionals, task forces and religious organizations.   Daya hosts trainings and seminars on domestic violence and other issues critical to the South Asian community. Past seminars have included topics on Drug and Alcohol Abuse Amongst South Asian Youth; Parent-Child communication; Women’s Mental Health; Incest in the South Asian community and Legal Rights.  We have hosted events that increase awareness of family violence, sexual assault and child abuse.  E.g.: Screening of Monsoon Wedding & Namesake.  Daya has also conducted trainings for mainstream organizations and State Agencies about the complexities relating to South Asian families undergoing crisis in the US.   In 2009, Daya initiated its Teen Initiative which would include outreach events with colleges and high school students to address relevant issues. We need young volunteers to take part. The volunteers will be trained through different youth services organizations.   :  As an organization that serves women of diverse religious groups, Daya works closely with religious leaders, faith communities and survivors of domestic violence to better understand the key issues for the survivors in relation to their faiths. Daya works very closely with the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, local Gurwaras and Temples. Daya believes that understanding how religious organizations and communities address domestic violence is essential in providing further support for survivors and enabling a community change to end cycle of violence.   Daya publishes a quarterly e-newsletter to keep the community abreast with current issues .   As a means of reaching out to the community, Daya sets up booths at various community events.
