Inside Out’s bylaws mandate that our Board of Directors is composed of a minimum of 50% QTBIPOC individuals. This standard was enacted by our membership to ensure that the Board reflects the communities we serve, and that the Board holds accountability for the strategic vision of the organization, as well as final decision-making authority. In addition to the Board, Inside Out is governed and supported by 5 Board-led committees, whose terms of reference ensure the same standards of representation. These committees lead the organization in the areas of Human Resources, Strategic Planning, Marketing and Communications, Fundraising, and Financial Management.
