As cultural institutions continue to build more equitable and inclusive board cultures, there must be considerations for how organizations think about transitioning junior board members to more senior positions. Join host Brickson Diamond for the fourth installment of Big Answers from Experts: A Series on Board Excellence, with guest Rhoden Monrose of the CariClub, as they will discuss best practices for developing relationships and engaging with young leaders. As President of the CariClub, Rhoden partners with great companies to place their top talent on the boards of nonprofits that are doing good in the world. Blackstone, Citigroup, Davis Polk, Deloitte, EY, KKR, Morgan Stanley, Sidley Austin, and many others all trust CariClub to place their employees on nonprofit boards. In 5 years, CariClub made +3,000 board placements with a 98% satisfaction rating; vetted +150,000 nonprofits across the U.S.; and averaged ~96% placement rate per client.

Meet the Speakers: 

Headshot of Rhoden Monrose. Rhoden Monrose grew up in Harlem, NY after emigrating from Saint Lucia at the age of twelve. With the help of nonprofits, he attended Middlesex School before earning a scholarship to Trinity College. Upon graduating, Rhoden began his career as a derivatives trader at Citigroup. While the work was rewarding he felt something missing, and he tried to fill the void by working (and playing) harder. In 2011, he found a circle of like-minded individuals who found purpose in using their time, talent and money to make an impact. Rhoden’s personal experiences with nonprofit organizations helped fuel his passion to launch CariClub, a unique online platform for professionals who want to achieve more impact and excellence in their lives.
