#AskHer Series: Caring for Nonprofit Leaders

By Mercy Chikowore | Director of Communications

#AskHer Flier
#AskHer Flier
We hosted The Women's Foundation's #AskHer "Caring for Nonprofit Leaders of Color"  with C. Marie Taylor, President & Principal Consultant of Equity Through Action and Diana Ortiz, President & CEO of Doorways, sponsored by LeaderBridge, an initiative of the Crimsonbridge Foundation.
If you'd like to watch the webinar, you can watch the recording here: https://wawf.org/askhercaringforecap
C. Marie Taylor and Diana Ortiz both shed light on issues impacting nonprofit leaders of color. Here are just a few of the highlights:
  • When C. MarieTaylor heard a client say she was "Fannie Lou Hamer tired" at the top of the pandemic, she wanted to help them figure out how to change this.
  • Doorways gained their President & CEO Diana Ortiz during the pandemic. "As a woman of color leading an organization, we're under a microscope," she said."People are wondering not only how are you going to lead but how are you going to make the organization better."Diana also mentioned that women of color leaders are assumed to have a magic wand to fix everything.
  • In order to assess what is working and what isn't for leaders and staff, "Look at white dominant culture behaviors in organizations and ask "WHY?" Who started it? Can we do it a different way?" said C. Marie Taylor.
