Nonprofit organizations led by men have three times the assets as those led by women.
As a community, we haven’t supported enough minority leaders working hard to represent our neighbors in need. We’re addressing racial, gender, and power disparities in leadership by empowering local communities, amplifying the voices of nonprofit leaders of color and women, and preparing the broader community for these leaders’ continued success.
The inaugural program was launched in 2018 to address racial, gender, and resource disparities in local nonprofit leadership by empowering local communities, amplifying the voices of under-represented and under-resourced nonprofit leaders, and preparing the broader community for these leaders’ continued success.
The initiative invests more than a half million dollars over two years — $25K invested in each leader and organization per year — in ten high-impact organizations in the Greater Triangle led by Black, Latinx, and/or Woman leaders. In addition, United Way is collaborating with Leadership Triangle to offer rigorous leadership development opportunities beginning in spring 2024.
