Linda Myers

What emerges in your mind when it comes to Native Americans in our country?

Today’s guest has been working with the Navajo Native American community for 34 years. Her name is Linda Myers. You may have seen her and her work highlighted by CNN, where she was selected as a “CNN Hero”. She started the Program in the 1980’s during the turbulent years of the Hopi-Navajo land dispute which ultimately resulted in 10,000 Navajos being relocated from their traditional homelands. During those times there were many Elders facing severe hardships and deprivations. When Linda became aware of this desperate situation it was food more than anything else that these people needed for their survival. With the assistance of Grace Smith Yellowhammer, Linda began to help. And the Adopt a Native Elder nonprofit began.

Diversity on Nonprofit Boards – According to a survey by BoardSource, a research and support organization for nonprofit boards, 25% of boards are all white, and only 20% of board members are people of color. Yet, most nonprofit leaders and board chairs desire to have boards that are more diverse–not only racially, but in terms of gender, socioeconomic status, age, and experience. In order to reconcile this desire with reality, creating intentional plans for diversifying nonprofit boards is essential. Further, we know that boards–and teams–that are more diverse actually perform better, so how can nonprofits take intentional steps to diversify their boards?
