CEN ED/CEO Roundtable for Leaders of Color | Virtual (May - October, 2020)
Registration Information
May 27 - October 28, 2020


ED/CEO Roundtable for Leaders of Color

This group will meet virtually on the fourth Wednesday of every month. 





CEN will be launching our first roundtable series for nonprofit EDs/CEOs of color, starting in May 2020. As the COVID-19 pandemic has compounded the unique challenges that leaders of color regularly face such as the consistent roadblocks to accessing funding and other resources, as well as a lack of inclusion, diversity, and equity, CEN is dedicated to providing you with a resource to connect with other leaders of color to share your experiences, challenges, solutions, and support. Whether you've spent years as a leader in this sector or are brand new to the role, this program will leave you with valuable resources and strong connections. The monthly format includes:

  • Intensive, confidential small-group experiences
  • Timely, relevant content connecting your needs to current and emerging trends/challenges
  • Customized discussion that addresses current, tangible issues - board dynamics, unique community challenges, personal and organizational sustainability, fundraising, staffing, and much more - which are relevant for nonprofit executives of varying experience levels
  • Skilled CEN facilitators who blend participant needs and sector expertise
  • Topics tailored to the needs of the cohort

This professionally facilitated series consists of six hard-hitting monthly sessions of directed peer support and learning, which take place on a regularly-scheduled day of the month. To maintain an intimate and productive environment, space in each group is limited. 

CEN staff will survey the group to gain feedback and insight on different topics (unique to the group) that participants would like to discuss and will then provide tailored resources throughout the series.
