The people, governance practices, and partners that make the organization tick.
Executive Event Director
Ms. Lindsey Nicole Carter
Lindsey joined the Meeple-a-thon team in 2021 as a social media coordinator and quickly fell in love with the cause, and grew into a team leader role. In the past, her work experience revolved around event management and planning, and Meeple-a-thon was the perfect opportunity to combine her experience with her passion for helping others. Lindsey’s favorite board game is Betrayal at House on the Hill, but her passion lies more in war games such as Warhammer 40k, Hordes, Freeblades and Battletech. As her day job, Lindsey works as a front-end email developer for Cox Automotive.

Equity strategiesLast updated: 05/01/2023
GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more
- We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
- We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
- We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
- We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
- We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
- We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
- We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
- We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
- We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
- We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
- We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
