Diversity and Inclusion for Emerging and Minority Leadership
According to a study conducted by the D5 Coalition in 2014, African Americans made up only 3% of all CEO/President roles. Shocking? It should be! Many organizations believe they have addressed diversity and inclusion within their organizations. And yet studies continue to point out the self-reinforcing cycle causing the majority of white staff in leadership roles in the nonprofit sector.
In this session, Sondra Dellaripa, president of Harvest Development Group, and Jamal Jimerson, executive director of the Minority Inclusion Project, will ways to break this cycle and how nonprofits can identify and groom talent for leadership roles, especially for minority professionals.
This facilitated and interactive session will serve as a "conversation starter" toward a path of strategy and action on the part of participants to change their organization's path to inclusion.
Individuals will learn:
- About the current state of diversity and inclusion in the NPO Sector
- How are nonprofits failing at diversity and inclusion
- What obstacles organizations face and how can you overcome them
This session is co-facilitated by Jamal Jimerson.
