Equity Forward: Nonprofit Leadership Summit

Recent reports on the state of equity in the social sector's workforce and leadership show that diversity initiatives over the last 20+ years are not going far enough to create meaningful diversity and inclusion. Practitioners and thought leaders across the country have called for a renewed commitment and new strategies that address structural and systemic barriers that have persisted for generations. This event will bring together national partners and local leaders to share knowledge, discuss common challenges, and consider opportunities for accelerating our collective efforts over the next three to five years.
