On the Rise: Creating a pipeline of leadership advancement for Women of Color and Gender Expansive BIPOC
The Women’s Fund is offering a new learning series for nonprofit leaders as an outgrowth of the Equity Succession Planning (ESP) Series that the we offered in September and October 2023 which focused on how to build equitable organizations through leadership succession and transitions.
This new learning series, facilitated by Amihan Matias, WFWM Senior Director of Community Partnerships, is open to all interested in learning about building a culture of equity to support the advancement of Women of Color and gender expansive BIPOC within our organizations.
The first session will take place online Tuesday, February 13, 1:30 to 3:30 pm. We will examine and discuss some of the challenges faced by Women of Color and gender expansive BIPOC in advancing to senior leadership positions within organizations. We will also reflect on and discuss ways to address these complex issues. Sessions are drop-in and will take place once a month.
