Creating space & building influencers.


A board of directors, or board, is a group of individuals, often elected, who represent shareholders or an organization/business. A board’s mandate is to establish policy for organization oversight and management and guide equitable decision making.  

Problem is, many boards are not reflective of the organization and/or the community it serves. People of color and more specifically, Black people, are often not present on boards.

YBI strives to bridge that gap, giving Black leaders in the Omaha metro the tools needed to join and maintain presence on boards - guiding the decisions for our community.
