Initial Themes on Nonprofit Transitions from White to BIPOC Leaders

About this resource

While many organizations are eager to transition from white leaders to leaders of color, they often do not have the experience, expertise, commitment, or support in place to fully embrace new leadership and make these transitions successful or joyful. Too often, the new leaders of color pay the price for under-prepared organizations.

This report shines a light on one small group of organizations and offers some findings, rather than recommendations. It helps us to better understand the realities of what is happening on the ground as we seek to develop a better set of considerations and capacities for releasing and sharing power that white people in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors must hold themselves accountable to, particularly during this critical period.
