Join us for a Zoom gathering coinciding with the recent release of the report, Race to Lead Revisited, and a panel discussion about race and leadership in the nonprofit sector.
Earlier this year, the Building Movement Project (BMP) released Race to Lead Revisited: Obstacles and Opportunities in Addressing the Nonprofit Racial Leadership Gap. This new report, based on over 5,000 responses collected from a 2019 survey, builds upon the findings of previous reports and explores new insights on race and leadership in the sector.
Race to Lead Revisited presents three key findings, which will be discussed during this webinar:
1. The original Race to Lead report is still relevant three years later.
2. There is a white advantage in the nonprofit sector.
3. DEI efforts are widespread and their effectiveness is uncertain.
This webinar features Sean Thomas-Breitfeld, co-director of the Building Movement Project, in conversation with local nonprofit leaders. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from our expert panelists, and to learn more about the report and its specific implications for nonprofits in the Kansas City area.
To continue the conversation, we encourage you to also register for the follow-up discussion of this presentation, Diving Deeper: A Discussion about Race and Leadership in Kansas City Nonprofits, occurring on Monday, November 23rd from 5-6 PM.
Sean Thomas-Breitfeld co-directs the Building Movement Project, which supports and pushes the nonprofit sector to tackle the most significant social issues of our times by developing research, creating tools and training materials, providing guidance, and facilitating networks for social change.
Prior to joining the BMP staff, Sean spent a decade working in various roles at Community Change, where he developed training programs for grassroots leaders, worked in the communications and policy departments coordinating online and grassroots advocacy efforts, and lobbied on a range of issues, including immigration reform, transportation equity, and anti-poverty programs.
