Edson Foundation looking to bring more ethnic-diversity to executive boards of social-service organizations

LOWELL -- Phil Hall, the administrator of the Theodore Edson Parker Foundation, sees a crucial missing component from many of the city's more established, immigrant-serving, social-service organizations.

Their boards of directors have few members from the largely ethnic-minority populations they serve.

“We recognize it's not easy attracting newcomers to your board, but we think it's an important part of governance,” Hall said.
