The Building Movement Project has released Race to Lead: Women of Color in the Nonprofit Sector, which examines the impact of both race and gender on the career advancement and experiences of women of color working in the nonprofit sector.
From survey data, write-in responses, focus groups, and interviews, the report highlights the intersection of barriers facing women of color in nonprofits. The report also includes a section focused on responses from Asian/Pacific Islander, Black, Latinx, Native American, and transgender women of color.
Program to Aid Citizen Enterprise (PACE) has partnered with The Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management to explore this research further in a free two-part series and seeks to bring greater opportunities to Pittsburgh nonprofits by insisting on practices that promote fairness.
Picking Up the Gauntlet: The Board’s Role in Achieving Greater Racial Equity in Leadership
Tuesday, March 5 from 4 – 7 p.m. at Co-Lab 18
In 2018, the Nonprofit Quarterly magazine challenged Pittsburgh’s nonprofit sector to use the impending retirement of nonprofit executives (who are primarily white) to increase the numbers of leaders of color. In this hands-on workshop, we will examine the cause as well as the effect and craft a Pittsburgh response to the challenge.
Instructor: Luci Dabney, Program to Aid Citizen Enterprise
Working with Our Foundation Allies: Equity in Grantmaking
Friday, April 12 from 9 – 11 a.m. at The Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management
The pursuit of equity in grantmaking is crucial in our community. Many generous gifts from foundations have often secured the future for nonprofits in our region, but how do they ensure that they are using a racial equity lens to determine their grantmaking? In this discussion, we’ll talk to foundation leaders who pay disciplined attention to race and ethnicity while still analyzing problems, looking for solutions, and defining success for an excellent return on investment.
Conversationalists: Peggy Outon, Bayer Center; Carmen Anderson, the Heinz Endowments and Michele Cooper, McAuley Ministries
