Equipping nonprofits to advance social change

Race to Lead: Confronting the Racial Leadership Gap, Implications for Capacity Builders

Oct 12, 2018

In June 2017, the Building Movement Project released the first report in the Race to Lead series looking at why there are so few leaders of color in the nonprofit sector. The results of a survey of over 4,000 people working in nonprofits clearly indicate that bias and structural barriers – rather than qualifications or aspirations – prevent people of color from advancement. This session will start with a quick review of the existing reports and new data, followed by an interactive discussion with session participants on 1) their reactions and experiences, 2) how the findings can influence practice, and 3) what other information is needed for effective racial justice capacity building.
