About the Project

The BBI Leaders of Color workgroup has grown from 8 members to over 25 members from organizations across the country. Together they have written three position papers including the most recent one with a focus on navigating homogenous cultures within our field and the distinct challenges leaders of color face.

The work of this group has been energized by several virtual summits and more recently, two in-person summits – one in Baltimore, MD in April 2022 and one in Atlanta, GA in May 2023.

Be sure to join us in Phoenix, AZ May 2-4, 2024!
