These inequities and more are highlighted in the new Talent Justice report produced by Fund the People and the Center for Urban and Racial Equity. Join us in a discussion of the findings and strategies for investing in equity in the nonprofit workforce. Register for Webinar!
Join us on Wednesday, May 29 at 10:30-11:45am (PST)/1:30-2:45pm (EST) to learn about the new Talent Justice research report! Produced by Fund the People and the Center for Urban and Racial Equity, this report offers important findings on the challenges and opportunities of investing in intersectional racial equity in the nonprofit workforce. With over 12 million paid workers, nonprofits employ the third largest workforce, this means 1 in 10 employees in the U.S. works for a nonprofit. Despite the size and impact of the sector, nonprofits face a chronic deficit of investment in their staff. To further complicate matters, this sector struggles to attract, retain, and advance people from racially, ethnically, and otherwise diverse backgrounds.
The Talent Justice study looks at these issues from the perspectives of funders, nonprofits, and consultants. And it examines how the issues impact nonprofit professionals at various stages in their careers — from incoming interns to retiring executives — because the entire nonprofit workforce is valuable.
Guest presenters include Rusty Stahl, President & CEO, Fund the People; Yolanda Caldera-Durant, Vice President, Fund the People; and Judy Lubin, President, Center for Urban and Racial Equity.
We explore what funders can do to encourage and support nonprofits to do better and how grantmaking and fundraising practices can be a powerful part of the solution. We look forward to your participation!
