Minority Inclusion Project (MIP) works within a peer-learning network of nonprofit, private, and public partners to close the nonprofit racial leadership gap by creating pathways to leadership for people of color. We provide board training & leadership development, diversity programs, transformative consulting services, and community conversations that help create a more informed, equitable, and inclusive social sector where all people – with regards to race, age, culture, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, class, or disability are invited to the leadership table, respected, and treated fairly. Our growing network includes more than 50 organizations and 700 individuals across sectors including faith-based and arts organizations, private and community foundations, nonprofit agencies, community coalitions, private sector businesses, colleges, and more.
MoveUp 6th Annual Meeting w/ Keynote Speaker Jamal Jimerson
REGISTRATION is NOW OPEN for our 6th Annual Meeting at the Pond House, located in the beautiful gardens of Elizabeth Park! The event begins at 4:00, with hor d'oeuvres, networking, and cash bar, followed by a short program, and more food and time for networking. We are pleased to announce that this year's keynote speaker is Jamal Jimerson, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Minority Inclusion Project (MIP), who will talk about equity and inclusion in our work, and we will honor this year's recipient of the Sharon O'Meara Award for Leadership, Innovation & Collaborative Spirit. After the program, please stay for more hor d'oeuvres, networking, conversation with our speakers, and cash bar.
MIP offers business professionals training, guidance, and opportunities in their pursuit of nonprofit board and staff leadership. Experienced professionals can benefit from our valuable networking events, community conversations, board matching, and mentorship opportunities.
Many nonprofit boards lack diversity and tend to elect individuals who share the same personal networks. This potentially limits opportunities to reach beyond their boundaries. MIP helps nonprofit organizations build their diversity, equity, and inclusion capacity.
