Recording: Let’s Talk Equity - Experiences of a Nonprofit Leader of Color

January 1, 2030


Join your nonprofit colleagues for discussions on the diversity, intersectionality, and inclusion issues facing the sector. These monthly calls are an important opportunity to connect with your colleagues facing similar challenges and opportunities, learn from one another's experiences, share ideas and best practices, and more.

On this month's call: 

It has been almost a year since we conducted the Racial Equity in Kentucky's Nonprofit Sector report commissioned by the Kentucky Nonprofit Racial Equity Task Force. The report revealed only 11% of the survey respondents identified as nonprofit leaders of color, and gaining the perspective and representation of these nonprofit leaders is essential to moving from discussion to action. This call featured a candid discussion to help gain insight into the experience of being a nonprofit leader of color. Facilitated by Donna Murray-Brown of DMB Coaching and Consulting. Under her leadership as former CEO of Michigan Nonprofit Association, Donna’s team launched a cohort for BIPOC nonprofit leaders, a space for BIPOC-identifying leaders to affirm each other and build solidarity. (Note: The recording was paused during the open discussion at the end, but the remainder of the call was recorded.)
