Friday Linked Round-Up: Creating a Diverse Leadership Pipeline

by Michele Martin on June 29, 2018

In this week’s Round-Up, we share resources for creating a leadership pipeline that is more inclusive and diverse.

The Nonprofit Racial Leadership Gap: Flipping the Lens–“Race to Lead: Confronting the Racial Leadership Gap,” a report released in 2017, finds that training is not the answer to increasing the diversity of nonprofit leadership. Instead, the nonprofit sector needs to address the practices and biases of those governing nonprofit organizations.”

How to Think Differently About Diverse Leadership in Nonprofits: Get Comfortable with Discomfort–“One of the rarer reasons that organizations took on multicultural programs was to “dismantle white/dominant culture.” But this was the only rationale (out of eleven) that led to organizations developing career ladder programs and mentoring programs to create opportunities for staff of color. Doing this much deeper multicultural work requires a commitment to “fundamental organizational transformation”—a commitment that seems too rare in the sector.”

Step-by-Step: A Guide to Achieving Diversity and Inclusion in the Nonprofit Workplace–In this guide for nonprofit organizations, Diversity & Inclusion Initiative Director Tyra Sidberry and writer Pat Dixon provide a step-by-step approach – in seven phases – to achieving diversity and inclusiveness in the nonprofit workplace.

Operationalizing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Your Organization–Excellent practical tips and ideas for building equity and inclusion into your operations.

Accelerating Nonprofit Board Diversity–Boards provide strategic guidance and leadership and increasing diversity at the Board level can be as important as staff pathways.
