Race to Lead Report Findings: Women of Color in the Nonprofit Sector
Community Briefing with Building Movement Project's Ofronama Biu

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Please join us to hear from
Building Movement Project (BMP) as they share findings and facilitate discussion
of their recently released report,
Race to Lead: Women of Color in the Nonprofit Sector

BMP’s Race to Lead research emphasized the need to address deeply embedded biases and systemic barriers that negatively impact the career advancement and experiences of people of color working in the nonprofit sector. By examining the impact of both race and gender on survey respondents, this report adds important nuance to the conclusions drawn from the other reports in the Race to Lead series. Key findings include:

  • Racial and gender biases create barriers to advancement for women of color. Women of color report being passed over for new jobs or promotions in favor of others—including men of color, white women, and white men—with comparable or even lower credentials.
  • Education and training do not provide equity. Women of color with the advanced education were more likely than men of color, white men or white women to work in administrative roles and the least likely to hold senior leadership positions.  
  • The social landscape of organizations is fraught for women of color. Women of color who reported that their race and/or gender have been a barrier to their advancement indicated that they were sometimes left out or ignored and sometimes hyper-visible under intense scrutiny, with both conditions creating burdens.

Please feel free to download the report and share the link – www.racetolead.org – widely.

Who Should Attend?

Everyone in the nonprofit sector, whether you are a CEO or volunteer leader, funder, consultant, staff member, advocate, or intermediary.
