Join EPIP Bay Area for a drink (on us!) and discussion at on the nonprofit racial leadership gap, framed by Building Movement Project's recently published report, Race to Lead, and D5 Coalition's study on career pathways of professionals of color in philanthropy.
The percentage of people of color in nonprofit executive director roles has remained under 20% for the past decade. To increase the number of people of color leading nonprofits, the sector needs a new narrative about the problem and new strategies to address it. Nonprofits have to transfer the responsibility for the racial leadership gap from those who are targeted by it (aspiring leaders of color), to those governing organizations.
Although we encourage you to read the full reports (and share them with your colleagues!), please read the Executive Summaries before this meetup. This will not be a space to debate the value of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the social sector, but rather a space for small group discussion and peer learning.
