INFORMATION
Training Overview

Does your organization have enough leaders of color? Learn how to overcome the racial leadership gap.

Studies have shown that the percentage of people of color in nonprofit executive director/CEO roles has remained under 20% for the past 15 years. Other senior leadership positions show similar racial disparities. Although the country is becoming more diverse and people are increasingly demanding more equitable representation, many organizations are failing to evolve in their hiring and promotion practices.

You can take action now to understand the issue and systemic bias, and guide your nonprofit to build a more diverse management team.
