*Executive Transitions Reimagined: Practices that Center BIPOC Leaders
Event Category 


Nonprofit staff leaders, boards, consultants, and funders continue to struggle with the question of how to design and execute executive transition processes that:

  1. reflect equity and justice values
  2. engage staff and community beyond the board of directors
  3. attract and support incoming BIPOC leaders
  4. allow for emergent interpretations of how executive leadership looks and acts

Join us for a conversation that interrogates executive transition "best practice." Which practices might we keep and reimagine? Which can we let go of? What should we add to the transition model to center the needs and realities of incoming BIPOC leadership especially?

This conversation will be courageous and specific, leaving you with new energy and ideas to update your approach to executive transition.
