Grassroots nonprofits of color play a crucial role in the nonprofit ecosystem. Despite this, many efforts to support nonprofits of color fall short. How does capacity building look different when working with nonprofits of color? Join the authors of a recent Stanford Social Innovation Review article on this topic as they cover the seven foundational elements of transformational capacity building that support grassroots organizations, with a focus on nonprofits of color. This session will be interactive and include an overview of key points, break-out sessions, and a Q & A with the authors. Come with questions and be ready to engage in a lively and thoughtful discussion.
Washington Nonprofits is pleased to offer this course for free to all in the nonprofit community. Please consider making a donation to RVC whose team members authored the article Transformational Capacity Building and are presenting this interactive webinar.
This session will be recorded and the recording will be sent to all registered participants.
