Race to Lead

LGBTQ Nonprofit Staff
and the Racial Leadership Gap

Summary LGBTQ people of color in the nonprofit sector face increased challenges to career advancement compared to their straight and white LGBTQ counterparts. To combat the institutionalized racial bias within nonprofits and the nation's patchwork of anti-discrimination laws that uniquely affect their professional trajectories, the nonprofit sector needs a more intentional focus on lived experiences of LGBTQ people of color in the workplace. This starts with a more honest dialogue about how racism adversely impacts LGBTQ people of color.
