Workshop: Race, Power and Social Impact within Nonprofit Organizations  

Overview: Nonprofit organizations often unconsciously perpetuate structural and institutional racism, which undercuts their purpose and impact and contributes to organizational dysfunction. This workshop provides an overview of the history and present state of those dynamics and provides for discussion of tools and practices that can advance the cause of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in—and through the work of—nonprofit organizations.

Target Audience: This course is designed for individuals with professional interests in social impact, racial equity and/or nonprofit leadership.

Admission Requirements: Individuals wanting to take this course should have at least a cursory understanding of nonprofit organizations, structural and institutional racism and white privilege. They should also be able to engage in direct conversations about race and equity without fear or defensiveness.

About the Program: Nick Bayard developed this program out of years of study and practice in nonprofit organizations, from his desire to create healthy mechanisms through which to talk about issues related to race, and out of his passion for promoting DEI in the nonprofit sector.

About the Instructor: Nick Bayard is the Executive Director of The REACH Center, a Tacoma-based organization serving over 2,000 youth and young adults in the Greater Puget Sound region each year. Nick has led social impact work in Washington State, Washington, DC, Africa, and South America, and has raised over $15 million in public and private philanthropic dollars in support of that work. He is an accomplished musician, writer and coach. Nick holds a master’s degree in Public Administration in International Development from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, and a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from Brown University.
