Program Description:

In the current Covid-19 pandemic situation many inequities in the nonprofit sector have been revealed, including the systemic racism within the sector.  We are offering this program as a response to the current racial inequities we are facing in New Mexico, and across the US, and how the nonprofit sector can do better to be anti-racist.

The Emerging Leaders facilitation team will lead this 8-session program to unravel the systemic racism of the nonprofit sector, helping leaders transform the sector for more equitable systems and distributed power.

This program is open to anyone working in the nonprofit and philanthropic sector. We welcome board members, volunteer teams, staff, program officers, donors ­– anyone who wants to learn anti-racism in the sector and do something about it.

There is NO application process. We ask for full participation and for participants to commit to all sessions.

In this 16-hour session (8 sessions of 2 hours each) you’ll join nonprofit professionals in a guided history of the nonprofit and philanthropic sector.

These sessions will explore:

  • The history of how the nonprofit sector came to be, and how philanthropy was designed for the benefit of corporate interests
  • How to dismantle systemic racism in the sector (case studies)
  • Working with boards, staff, volunteers to rebuild an equitable organization; Stop the “jump-to-solutions” mindset often pervasive on boards when addressing anti-racism and equity issues
  • How to talk to Philanthropy about systemic racism
  • Ways to support staff, board, and volunteers in their own anti-racism journeys
  • Provide space for personal learning, transformation, networking, support

What else you’ll get:

  • Resources galore
  • Support from skilled facilitators, brave space for personal and professional transformation
  • A network of transformational leaders
