The Race to Lead: Confronting the Nonprofit Racial Leadership Gap report and www.racetolead.org are live!

The nonprofit sector is experiencing a racial leadership gap. Studies show the percentage of people of color in the executive director/CEO role has remained under 20% for the last 15 years even as the country becomes

To find out more, the Building Movement Project conducted the Nonprofits, Leadership, and Race survey.
