Funding Opportunity: US DOJ Second Chance Act Pay for Success Initiative
The Building Movement Project has been conducting its Race to Lead survey since 2016, learning about the nonprofit sector and the racial leadership gap. The “Race to Lead” report series explores the results of this survey and challenges the way the nonprofit sector has been approaching the racial leadership gap. The 2019 Race to Lead survey is now live, and anyone working for pay in the U.S. nonprofit sector is encouraged to participate. The new data collected will inform the next round of Race to Lead reports.
