Women in Leadership Roles Make the Nonprofit Sector and Our Communities Better

Posted May 25, 2018 11:50 AM
While we are far from achieving gender equity in leadership of business, government or nonprofit spheres, more attention is being given to women having access to leadership roles. While research has repeatedly shown that women leaders are good for business, many questions remained unanswered: How can we better recognize women as leaders in an authentic way and how do we better lift up women leaders in the nonprofit sector?

This session will explore ways to encourage women to seek nonprofit leadership roles.

Participants will explore the barriers that inhibit women from participating in leadership roles using an intersectional lens – a frame of reference that takes into account factors like race, sexual orientation, national origin, socio-economic status, etc.

Connect with fellow attendees to identify ways to challenge unconscious gender stereotypes and break down institutional barriers.

Presenter Cat Cuevas has designed this workshop for nonprofit staff of all genders who are interested in increasing the effectiveness of their mission by improving gender parity in leadership. The course provides actionable ways to improve racial and gender diversity in the sector. The course also helps women learn to effectively promote themselves.

The day will be full of experiential activities, group discussions, and the opportunity to hear from a panel of local leaders. Everybody who is committed to learning research-based solutions to gender equity are invited to talk, listen, and contemplate this vital topic that we’re just getting started to speak out about.
