Honour the Leadership Legacy of AABLI's Co-Founder, Yvette Chappell-Ingram

Yvette Chappell-Ingram, the first president and CEO of the African American Board Leadership Institute (AABLI), co-founded the organization with Virgil Roberts in 2011. Together they set out to prepare a pipeline of African American professionals ready to serve on the boards of nonprofit organizations and government commissions. In time, AABLI's vision expanded to include corporate boards.

Chappell-Ingram’s legacy includes hundreds of talented, dynamic AABLI alumni making a difference in critical board leadership positions. The AABLI impact is felt across the region and beyond, enhancing the effectiveness of governing boards and better reflecting the communities they serve.

AABLI’s work is bringing about change where it counts, though Chappell-Ingram would be the first to say there still is much to do. Absent her vision, innovative ideas and sweat equity, however, the organization’s record of achievement would not have been possible.

After a decade of leadership, Yvette has retired from AABLI.

In tribute to her service, the organization established The Yvette Chappell-Ingram Leadership Legacy Fund, honoring this remarkable woman by helping to continue the necessary work toward diversity, equity, and inclusion in the boardroom.

Your gift to the Leadership Legacy Fund will not only salute Chappell-Ingram; and serve as an honorarium to her legacy, it will support board equity and diversity, social justice and leadership development.

If you donate by check, please make the check payable to "Community Partners for AABLI" or note AABLI in the memo line.
