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.

 

Executive Succession and Deepening the Bench

By 2020, 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. Still others are departing suddenly, leaving their organizations with no one at the helm. The Center's Executive Succession and Deepening the Bench initiative is helping nonprofit CEOs and boards plan and implement effective executive successions and deepen the staff bench for future leaders.
