Free Report and Webinar: "Race to Lead: Women of Color in the Nonprofit Sector"

Posted Mar 25, 2019 09:05 AM
Building Movement Project’s Race to Lead: Women of Color in the Nonprofit Sector report has just been released and reveals that women of color encounter systemic obstacles to advancing their careers in the nonprofit sector compared to white women and men of color.

One key finding is that education and training are not the solution, since women of color with high levels of education are more likely to be in administrative instead of leadership roles. They are also more likely to report frustrations about inadequate and inequitable salaries. BMP’s report surveyed more than 4,000 nonprofit staff members to gather this information.

On April 18, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. (PST) BMP is hosting a free webinar that summarizes the report’s findings and allows for a fruitful discussion on how BMP’s recommendations can help make the sector more supportive of the leadership of women of color. Register for the webinar.

Race to Lead is an initiative of BMP that seeks to narrow the racial leadership gap in the nonprofit sector through evidence-based, data-driven research and advocacy. For more than a decade, BMP has been advancing the potential of nonprofits to make a greater social impact by developing research, tools, training materials, and opportunities for partnership that align their operating practices with practical and creative solutions.
