How the Social Sector Can Develop the Next Generation of BIPOC Leaders

Host Organization: Stanford Social Innovation Review


This 90 minute interactive SSIR Live! program will:

•    Explore the critical need in the social sector to develop the next generation of BIPOC executive leaders
•    Present an innovative new model to do so that has already produced game-changing results in the Bay Area
•    Share the key design elements of this collaborative and cohort-based approach
•    Contextualize these insights for program participants to apply in their own communities

According to a 2017 national study, 87% of executive directors or presidents of nonprofit organizations and foundations were white, with minimal representation of African Americans (6%), Asian Americans (3%), and Hispanics (4%) in those positions. Yet not only do many of these organizations serve Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, the tiers below the senior executive level are often staffed by young BIPOC leaders. The social sector’s efforts towards Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) will be unnecessarily constrained unless it can unlock the in-house development of the next generation of BIPOC executive leadership.
