Ms. Toni Maloney

Profile:

When she helped found Bpeace in 2002, the idea that Toni helped root is that business people have a role to play in peace building.   As the leader of Bpeace since 2004, Toni created a vision of Fast Runner entrepreneurs in conflict-affected countries propelled by expertise shared generously by U.S. business professionals.   In 2005 she downshifted her strategic marketing consulting business--The Maloney Group--to lead Bpeace full-time.  Executives among her colleagues and clients followed her into this pioneering initiative as both Bpeace members and donors. In the for-profit world, Toni was best known as a marketing strategist with a proven track record of helping B2B clients successfully reposition themselves, launch new products and increase their new business batting average.  As president of The Maloney Group, Toni delivered strategic marketing advice to executives from leading service companies including Booz Allen Hamilton, Bank of America and PricewaterhouseCoopers.  Toni has held executive positions at several leading global firms including American Express, Ogilvy and McCann-Erickson.  She is a graduate of the NYU Stern School of Business.  Toni has been quoted in publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, and on CNN.  She has been a guest speaker at the NYU Stern School of Business, Harvard Business School, The New School, and Penn State.  In 2010, she was an invited participant to the Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship in Washington, DC.  In 2009, she won the Andrew Goodman Foundation Hidden Heroes Award. She was selected as a Purpose Prize Finalist in 2012.

September 2014)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Yes
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Yes
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Yes
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Yes
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
No

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Bpeace believes that creating jobs, creates peace.   Bpeace is a non-profit network of business people who volunteer their time and skills to assist brave entrepreneurs in countries with a history of violence and poverty:  Afghanistan, Rwanda, El Salvador and Guatemala.   We have a special interest in women entrepreneurs because their economic advancement is critical to creating and maintaining peace. Every year we conduct an annual census to determine how many jobs the entrepreneurs in our portfolio have created. Every job has a multiplier effect across employees, families, vendors and communities.   Jobs are the bridge to everything--more education, better nutrition and maternal health, less domestic violence, less poverty and more hope. Bpeace's principal donors are individuals, as well as major corporations like Pimco and PricwaterhouseCoopers. The U.S. Department of State has been a steady supporter, partially funding Bpeace's work in Afghanistan since 2004.  Bpeace was launched in 2002 with the help of UN Women.
