Equity in Leadership

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 focused on amplifying the voices of under-represented nonprofit leaders in the Greater Triangle.

Through our Equity in Leadership impact area, we’re aiming to address racial and gender disparities in nonprofit leadership and in 2018, named United Way’s first ever 10 To Watch.

10 To Watch makes a two-year investment in ten high-impact, local organizations led by women and people of color.
