Dallas Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation is proud to announce the inaugural Black Women in Nonprofit Leadership Cohort. Supported by community partners of Dallas, the Black Women in Nonprofit Leadership Cohort was developed to support Black women who are recognized as top leaders within the nonprofit sector offering innovative strategies and leadership making great impact for the communities they serve, but often times passed over for new jobs or promotions in favor of others—including men of color, white women, and white men—with comparable or even lower credentials.
These challenges require a call to action where Black women can come to develop professionally and personally, build network with one another and within the sector, and have a safe healing space that provides opportunity for courageous conversations and the ability to turn-off the code switch often required to be successful in the nonprofit sector.
Beginning January 21st, our Black women leaders will be participating in a 12-month cohort that provides training, education and support on issues related to mental health and Black women navigating the nonprofit sector.
Welcome to these amazing women leaders.
