Heartbreak and Possibility: Is the Nonprofit Sector Ready for Reinvention?

On March 21, the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits hosted the third webinar in its “Walking the Talk” series where they posed the question: Are we confronting the nonprofit racial leadership gap? Frances Kunreuther, co-director of the Building Movement Project, presented findings from a national survey to determine why – despite an increased number of training programs for leaders of color and the number of groups working on issues of race equity – are there not more leaders of color in nonprofits?

Gut Checking: How to re-wire the unconscious mind

Imagine for a moment that you are driving in an unfamiliar city and you happen upon a mural that you simply must stop to see more closely. You pull over, park your car on the side of the road, get out of the car, and pull out your phone to snap a picture. In your periphery, you see a group of young men walking towards you.
