This series is specific to building a network of support with and for BIPOC leaders in the nonprofit sector. This support group for new and aspiring BIPOC nonprofit leaders will focus on the foundational and evolving knowledge needed to successfully run a sustainable organization from the ground up.
This series of 5 sessions will break down key and frequently misrepresented concepts, into digestible parts, allowing for a mix of peer learning and emerging best practices while building a network of support within the BIPOC led and founded nonprofit sector. This is a drop-in series, you can register for 1, many, or all.
Sunshine Muse, Executive Director of Black Health New Mexico, will be joined by expert guest speakers from BIPOC led organizations to offer discussion, experiences, and tools that center equity in the processes. Instead of asking folks to assimilate, participants will be asked to build authentically. The goal of this series is to create a learning space by and for current and emergent BIPOC nonprofit leaders that supports growth, strategy-sharing and peer-mentorship – led by a facilitator rooted in cultural bravery, community values, relentless curiosity, and a fierce love for BIPOC liberatory frameworks.
