CANOE Learning Lab: Closing the Nonprofit Racial Leadership Gap
Studies show that the % of nonprofit organizations led by BIPOC executives has remained stagnant at 20% for over 15 years. Join us to learn, discuss, and explore strategies for closing these racial disparities through equitable, inclusive hiring and support for emerging leaders of color.

About the event
With so much attention dedicated to justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) initiatives over the last decade, why are people of color still significantly underrepresented in leadership positions at nonprofits? Specifically related to hiring, what can we do that we're not currently doing to disrupt this stagnation?
During CANOE's first Learning Lab, we’ll be dissecting these questions. Executive search and talent expert, Shalena Broadnax, will be joining us to provide insights from her own experience recruiting diverse talent for large nonprofits, including Teach for America and the KIPP Foundation. You'll get a chance to share your own insights, experiences, and challenges faced, as well as hear from other nonprofit operations professionals.
This is the first in a series of Learning Labs that CANOE will be organizing, in an effort to build a supportive community of operations professionals. If you're interested in learning more, please fill out the form on our Contact page.
