Batten Boards

Counsel. Connections. Community.

Each of our three boards emboldens the Batten vision in a different way, and elevates our overall visibility in the process.

"We are committed to making Batten the best place in the world for cultivating thoughtful and effective leaders who can transcend diverse and divided communities and provide innovative solutions to today's most pressing problems."
