Webinar: Race and Racism in the Nonprofit Sector

Participate in this webinar from the comfort of your desk!

Friday, April 30, 2021 (3:00 PM - 5:00 PM) (EDT)
Event Details

Despite the best intentions of nonprofit professionals committed to antiracism, nonprofit organizations continue to perpetuate--and even accelerate--institutional and structural racism. This leaves many wondering if their agency does more harm than good.

This webinar will provide a reframing of American nonprofits in the context of our history that will illuminate the structural underpinnings of racism throughout the nonprofit sector. It will also provide a mapping of power, influence, and accountability that will spotlight the key inequities within nonprofits. It will feature a 40-minute presentation and facilitated breakout sessions to explore these topics in depth. We will divide into breakout groups based on our roles in our organizations, in order to explore the power dynamics at play within our own organizations.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a live webinar and will NOT be recorded.

Participant Takeaways

Our goal is for participants to leave this webinar able to better identify how structural racism shows up in their organization and how systems of power hold that structural racism in place. Participants should leave with questions or ideas about necessary sectoral and organizational reform and the role(s) they might want to play in that reform.
