Women of Color in the Nonprofit Sector

  • Santa Fe Community Foundation 501 Halona Street Santa Fe, NM, 87505 United States (map)

As the former director of a statewide nonprofit capacity building organization, working closely with executive directors and boards of directors, I saw and experienced first hand the stark gender and racial inequity within the sector. I’m thrilled to lead a session on the topic at the Santa Fe Community Foundation.


Women in the sector make up the majority of front line positions (just take a look around your office) while executive leadership and board positions are predominantly held by men. As women of color, we are painfully aware of the lack of representation at all leadership levels. 

You have ideas for how your organization could do ‘this’ or ‘that’ better, and regularly have thoughts about how meaningful impact could be made “if we just did X.” 

Are you wanting to move into a leadership position but feel like the opportunity may never open up? You’re in the door, but how do you get a seat at the table?

On top of your professional goals you are balancing a busy personal life, constantly chasing time for your health and wellness. It feels like there simply aren’t enough hours in the day!

This session will help you take a holistic look at where you are in relation to where you want to be. We’ll use a proprietary goal-setting framework to support you in clearly defining your leadership and personal development goals. 

You will walk away with:

  1. A deeper understanding of your strengths and how they are being applied in your professional life

  2. Clear goals for the next 3-6 months

  3. A road map for getting your goals
