“When you exist in spaces that weren’t built for you, sometimes just being you is the revolution”
-Elaine Welteroth, More Than Enough
For our August Nonprofit Leadership Council, the Center for Nonprofit Leadership is excited to bring together local leaders of color to discuss what it takes for nonprofits to facilitate a space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) in the sector to do more than just survive, but to thrive as the leaders they are. This event aims to highlight the extra strain on BIPOC in the field normally and especially now during the current social climate, as well as propose strategies for taking care of BIPOC in nonprofit settings.
An introduction to key mental health terms and contextualizing the experience of BIPOC in the workplace will be presented by Carl Chávez. This presentation will be followed by a response panel of local leaders of color discussing their lived experiences and suggestions for fostering safe spaces for leaders of color to thrive in the nonprofit workplace.
