About the IDEA Breakfast Series

AFP Minnesota’s IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access) Breakfast Series invites nonprofit executives of color to share stories of leadership, fundraising, and how they navigate the sector as a person of color. The series is part of AFP-MN’s goal to make the fundraising profession more inclusive with greater representation in the sector at all levels of leadership.

The IDEA Series is specifically designed to benefit current and aspiring fundraisers of color; however the series is open to everyone interested in participating and learning from this conversation.

Presentation – Inclusive Fundraising Teams: A Listening Session

In the 2017 report, Race to Lead, Sean Thomas-Breitfeld and Frances Kunreuther make clear that people of color are leaving the sector – and fundraising profession for that matter – is due to organizations and the way they manage, recruit, promote, and engage people of color in the field.

This panel discussion will serve as a listening session in the experiences and systems that impact fundraisers of color in organizations throughout the Twin Cities. How do individuals’ backgrounds and cultures inform their work? What are key barriers to bringing someone’s personal and cultural identity into fundraising? How has organization culture helped or hindered individuals in that effort?

This session will speak to the management acumen and cultural competence organizations must have to support a diverse fundraising team. It will also serve as a guide for fundraisers of color who are entering the field and navigating organizations that may or may not have that competence.

Come enjoy a light breakfast and a deep discussion about how nonprofit organizations can support and grow diverse fundraising teams and all the strengths they possess.

Light breakfast of coffee, fruit, and pastries will be served.

Please share this event broadly with your network, especially your POC connections.
