Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) and The Nonprofit Sector: Building An Inclusive Culture
We must ensure that diversity is not simply a passing trend in the nonprofit sector but an enduring value that helps make our sector more sustainable. Today, 30 percent of the U.S. population is Black and/or Latino. Yet, only 10 percent of nonprofits are led by Black or Latino individuals. That number isn’t helped by the fact that only three of the top 50 charities in the nation have leaders of color. Our calling as a sector and as individuals responsible for conceiving a vision for our sector’s future is to change and challenge this reality.
- Discuss changing demographics in the United States
- Challenge stereotypes about the role BIPOC play in the nonprofit sector
- Identify transferable skills in diverse hires and professionals of color
