Introducing The Nonprofit Professionals of Color Collective

The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership recently launched The Nonprofit Professionals of Color Collective, a monthly leadership series.

According to the press release, the collective seeks to designed to provide a caucus space for New Jersey nonprofit professionals of color to engage in a supportive community for growth, professional development, and meaningful peer relationships.

"We believe nonprofit leaders, no matter their experience, can benefit from a multi-pronged approach to professional development and that leaders of color are rich with knowledge and will benefit from a nurturing and stimulating support network," says Victoria Fernandez, acting program director of Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership. Fernandez facilitates the series along Tyneisha Gibbs, founder and principal of 144th & Vine.

The Nonprofit Professionals of Color Collective states it's "not your typical leadership or workshop series."

Over the course of nine monthly gatherings, participants will be invited to engage in sessions about relevant topics for nonprofit professionals of color, enjoy facilitated peer-to-peer time, receive one-on-one coaching, peer and executive mentoring, and hang-out with plenty of like-minded social profit sector movers and shakers.
