Walking the Talk: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in North Carolina Nonprofits

One of the Center’s core values is to respect and include the wide variety of North Carolina’s people, cultures, regions, religions, and political views. To live this value, we've partnered with NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad in Walking the Talk: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in North Carolina Nonprofits.


Statewide Initiative on Executive Succession and Deepening the Bench

Within the next five years, North Carolina's nonprofit sector will see nearly 60% of its executive directors/CEOs leave their positions. Many are retiring baby boomers. Others are leaving for better, less stressful opportunities elsewhere. Still others are departing suddenly, leaving their organizations with no one at the helm. Complicating the situation is poor handling of many CEO transitions. All of this is happening in communities across North Carolina from Murphy to Manteo.

Learn more in Countdown to the Inevitable: North Carolina Nonprofit CEOs in Transition, a report by the Center, based on responses to a confidential, online statewide survey of executive directors/CEOs to learn about their career paths, plans for their own executive transitions, and their jobs and boards of directors.
