Information Session: New Mexico Women of Color Nonprofit Leadership Initiative
with Initiative Founder and Lead Facilitator Dr. Mi'Jan Celie Tho-Biaz

Monday, September 24, 2018 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

What does it mean to be a woman of color leader in the New Mexico nonprofit sector?
What are the opportunities and challenges in our day-to-day work?
Where do we find peer support, ongoing learning, and the space to explore our individual leadership path?

In a region as diverse as northern New Mexico, women of color are under-represented in nonprofit leadership. We are working to change that. The New Mexico Women of Color Nonprofit Leadership Initiative is being piloted in 2019. Developed with an advisory committee of current nonprofit leaders, the Initiative is designed for established and emergent women of color looking to broaden their skills and create community, while deepening their leadership in a peer-based, supportive environment. 

The long-term goals of the Initiative are to build the leadership capacity and practical skills of participants and, ultimately, to see a sustainable increase in nonprofit leadership roles filled by women of color.

This information session will be an opportunity to meet the Initiative’s Founder and Lead Facilitator, Dr. Mi’Jan Celie Tho-Biaz, and ask any questions you have about the Initiative and the application process. 

Attendance at the information session is not a requirement for applying to the Initiative.

You can read the full Initiative description here.

You can apply online here.

Please join us at the Information Session to ask any questions you have and to learn more about:

  • Details and goals for this Initiative;
  • The format and session dates for this Initiative;
  • Who should apply;
  • The application and review process (The application is available here);
  • Cost of attendance.

Unable to attend the live session or the online streaming option?  We’ll be posting questions from the session here and you are welcome to contact us anytime with questions you have about the Initiative, participants, and the application process.

Dr. Mi’Jan Celie Tho-Biaz, Ed.D., is an oral historian and cultural leader with a passion for narratives of personal transformation and community social change.

One of the Santa Fe New Mexican's 2017 “10 Who Made a Difference,” and University of San Francisco’s 2018 Living the Mission award recipient, Mi’Jan currently serves as faculty with the Banff Centre, and is the founder of the New Mexico Women of Color Nonprofit Leadership Initiative with the Santa Fe Community Foundation. Previously she led the Steinem Initiative's public policy digital storytelling at Smith College.

She has served as visiting scholar at the Interdisciplinary Center for Innovative Theory and Empirics at Columbia University, documentarian-in-residence at the Institute of American Indian Arts where the Rockefeller Foundation featured her work, and keynote presenter for the Create Justice Forum at Carnegie Hall.
