Race to Lead Revisited: Obstacles and Opportunities in Addressing the Nonprofit Racial Leadership Gap Executive Summary

Race to Lead Revisited: Obstacles and Opportunities in Addressing the Nonprofit Racial Leadership Gap presents findings from BMP’s 2019 survey of more than 5,000 paid nonprofit staff on their experiences of race and leadership in nonprofit settings.

The report focuses on three key findings that challenge individual organizations and the sector at large to move toward greater equity and inclusion:

  1. The findings of the original Race to Lead report are still relevant three years later.
  2. There is a white advantage in the nonprofit sector.
  3. Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts are widespread and their effectiveness is uncertain.

This Executive Summary provides a sampling of the data and findings. For a deeper analysis, download the full report.
