DESCRIPTION

The non-profit sector, like the rest of society, faces a big challenge when it comes to racial equity. Many organizations and leaders struggle to have open and honest conversations about race. And it goes beyond dialogue--How do we build authentic relationships across race? Address the practices and biases of board and staff leaders of non-profit organizations? Transform systemic racial inequity in the mission-driven organizations we love? The Trinity Boston Foundation (TBF) is hosting a group, which meets for seven sessions, with the goal of honest communication and strategic thinking among senior leaders and executive directors (both People of Color and White) of non-profits. This group will become a safe and trusted container for leaders to bring their most vexing racial equity challenges. We will unpack the biases that we each carry that get in the way of leading this work even more powerfully. We will have separate caucus time for the White and People of Color leaders to unpack the differing personal and professional challenges each group faces.
