SOLD OUT!: Nonprofit Leadership Series for Black Professionals
June 30, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
The Center is excited to partner with Rob Malone, Executive Director of The Arc Prince George’s County on this new series.
In a recent article, “How White People Conquered the Nonprofit Industry,” published in Nonprofit Quarterly, Anastasia Reesa Tomkin shared that Black people are underrepresented in the leadership ranks of nonprofits who serve people of color. Eighty percent of nonprofits are led by white executives. In fact, the percentage of people of color in executive director/CEO roles has remained under 20 percent for the last 15 years, according to a leadership report titled “Race to Lead: Confronting the Racial Leadership Gap.”
This series is designed to engage leaders in supervisory and management roles. It is a small and reasonable response to help advance diversity and value the talent of Black leaders in the nonprofit sector. The purpose of these online gatherings is to share information, tools and methods to help drive and inspire more leaders of color. More importantly, we want to raise the consciousness of those hiring nonprofit executives.
Each Session will be held from 9:00-10:15am via Zoom. Link to be provided at registration.
