*Breaking into the Nonprofit Space as an Organization of Color
Event Category 


The political, social, economic, and health environment of the last 18 months has motivated and empowered individuals through collective action to forge change within all communities for racial and economic equity. Individuals of color have a unique perspective and have created nonprofit organizations to impact change within their communities.  

This webinar is designed to teach people of color interested in starting a nonprofit how to ideate, build, and execute the implementation of an effective and successful nonprofit that is both an influencer and helps drive change. The session will also explain the key levers that help build trust, get community buy-in, and address ways that new nonprofits can scale, and manage expectations as you develop a financial plan. Join Dr. Edward Summers of The Thinkubator and colleagues Dr. Duleep Deosthale and Dr. Lessie Branch in a conversation about leading a nonprofit of color.  

This session qualifies for 1.5 CFRE hours.
