What Does Race Have to Do with It? Unpacking Racial Demographics in the U.S. Social Sector

Many philanthropy-serving organizations have committed to improving racial equity--especially in terms of access to resources and leadership roles for people of color. However, it can be hard to find demographic data, and even harder to understand sector-wide issues related to racial equity. Over the past few years, Candid has been collecting key demographic data about tens of thousands of nonprofit organizations (including leaders, boards and staff) across the U.S. to better understand the demographic makeup of the social sector. In this session, we will share our latest analyses and research findings based on this data, including an intersectional examination of the role that racial identity plays in access to resources and positions of power across different types of organizations and different regions within the U.S.  This session will also include an interactive discussion about how philanthropy-serving organizations can leverage this information to increase racial equity.
