CAUSE EFFECTIVE FELLOWS PROGRAM: ADVANCING LEADERS OF COLOR IN FUNDRAISING
The Cause Effective Fellows Program: Advancing Leaders of Color in Fundraising brings together mid-career development professionals of color for a transformative experience that strengthens participants’ position in the field. Combining skills building, peer roundtables, unique opportunities to connect with nonprofit leaders and customized coaching and mentoring support, the Cause Effective Fellows Program is designed to support retention and build a pipeline of opportunity and growth for Development Directors of color.
The program, now in its third year, aims to:
- Develop a pipeline of development professionals of color and build an ongoing support network to share resources and information for long-term success in the field
- Provide a pathway for Development Directors of color who are interested in expanding their leadership roles within the nonprofit sector
- Elevate development as a strategic management function in participants’ organizations through these development professionals’ ascendance into their nonprofit’s senior leadership team
- Train Development Directors on the skills necessary to navigate DEI issues such as implicit bias or micro-aggressions, as well as provide tools to support change in their environments around these conditions
