Webinar: How the Social Sector Can Develop the Next Generation of BIPOC Leaders – Feb 2

Posted by Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) on January 18, 2022

According to a 2017 national study, 87% of executive directors or presidents of nonprofit organizations and foundations were white. Ironically, many of these organizations serve Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, and the tiers below the senior executive level are often staffed by young BIPOC leaders.

‘Frustrated with the homogeneity of your senior team and don’t know where to start? This 90 minute interactive SSIR Live! program will address how our sector can accelerate the development of BIPOC executive leadership by analyzing an often overlooked factor in the dominant model of leadership development that disadvantages the development of BIPOC leaders: the expectation that organizations develop talent on their own, in an ad hoc manner, and with an individualistic framework.

This LIVE program will address issues including:

  • Why expecting existing executive directors to take primary responsibility in developing BIPOC leaders is a flawed recipe
  • What the key developmental needs are for emerging leaders with the potential to become executive leaders – including the one need that most leadership programs neglect
  • How to foster an approach to leadership development that is collaborative between organizations, even in a competitive labor market
  • Why the “tap on the shoulder” effect is so critical
  • How to interest funders in a new vision for BIPOC leadership development
