Diana Clegg, Executive Director

Diana Clegg believes in the value and transformative power of the arts to inform our understanding of one another as individuals and as part of the social and emotional fabric of our culture. She has served on the boards of directors for a variety of Chicago-area and national nonprofit arts organizations, including as president of the board of directors for the Arts of Life (a non-profit art studio for developmentally disabled adults) and Playing Out Productions (a gay and lesbian community instrumental music organization) where she facilitated and implemented 3-year strategic plans. Since 1993, Diana has also been a board member and singer with Artemis Singers and has produced numerous choral concerts and other performing arts events, including the 10th Sister Singers National Choral Festival in 2010. Diana comes to Erasing the Distance with a BS in Sociology from Eastern Illinois University, an MS in Human Services Administration from Spertus College, and 20 years' experience in nonprofit management. She also has 40+ hours of crisis intervention and anti-violence advocacy training. As Manager of the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago RISE Children's Center, Diana planned and directed the center's development and expansion, establishing a city-wide reputation as a high-quality provider of specialized child sexual abuse clinical services with a program budget of close to $1 million. More recently, Diana cofounded Third Side Consulting. Her consultation and technical assistance for nonprofit organizations has focused on grant writing, policies and procedures, staff supervision and board development. She has also done significant event coordination, including multi-day conferences, professional workshops, board retreats, fundraising events, weddings and other private parties. Diana is very excited to bring her organizational skills and experience to the operational management of Erasing the Distance.

Diana Clegg has over 20 years of organizational development experience with non-profits. Currently she is the Executive Director of Erasing the Distance, an organization that uses theatre to promote awareness and compassion around mental health issues.

...
Diana came in and firmly but gently laid out our marching orders, and we all relaxed. When I started on the board, ETD had a budget of about $125,000 and had reached about 10,000 audience members. Today, the budget is closer to $275,000 and they have reached 55,000 audience members. I believe that is due largely to Diana.
...
The first thing Diana did was analyze our fundraising and make a plan to diversify the sources of our income. "I know a lot of social service agencies have a lot of grant funding from the government, so when we have problems like we are having now with the Illinois budget, that really impacts their work," says Diana. At Erasing the Distance, we had a very generous benefactor who was fronting a large percentage of our budget, and Diana strategically widened our funding sources by approaching corporations and foundations.
Step 2: Create Systems
At small non-profits, many of the tasks are handled by one person who follows their own system. If that person is unavailable, nobody else can cover them, and important things fall through the cracks. So, the second thing Diana did at Erasing the Distance was work with the founder and part time staff to get everything out of their heads and written down. Then she created scalable and trainable systems, such as tracking expenses, that all staff members could learn. According to Diana, "That really helps with growing an organization because then as you gradually bring new people on, you have a better sense of what's needed and how to bring them in and get them trained."
