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.
How to Cultivate Authentic Board Diversity and Why It Helps Your Story w/ Jamal Jimerson
MIP Executive Director, Jamal Jimerson, will present a workshop on nonprofit board diversity at the Department of Consumer Protection's 4th Annual Cross-Cultural Communications Symposium. The conference which is from 8:30am - 4:30pm is FREE, can you can join Jamal's workshop after the morning plenary.
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.
