The Golden State Difference

The Golden State is often held up as the gold standard when it comes to inclusive practices. However, a report released in February by the Building Movement Project (BMP) found that despite having a larger percentage of nonprofits led by people of color than the national average, California still lags in reflecting its population and service communities’ overall diversity in its nonprofit leadership. The Building Movement Project’s California-specific report on the racial leadership gap is the first drilldown on their national snapshot released by in July 2017. For more about the national-level Race to Lead report, check out our Q&A with BMP’s Sean Thomas-Breitfeld.
