During this session, we explored the intersection of wellness and nonprofit leadership. We had a chat with C. Marie Taylor, President & Principal Consultant of Equity Through Action and Diana Ortiz, President & CEO of Doorways. The session helped create an open dialogue for nonprofit leaders of color, their staff, boards, and funders to prioritize leader wellness. Our special guests provided some actionable strategies that nonprofit leaders could take away to address staffing, burnout, fatigue and other challenges, particularly during the pandemic.
This timely chat was moderated by Washington Area Women’s Foundation Interim President and CEO, Jackie Lendsey and featured opening remarks from the Crimsonbridge Foundation President and CEO Danielle M. Reyes.
