We are excited to be launching The New Philanthropists Board Mentors of Color Program.
Get matched with an experienced community leader and develop leadership skills, build & deepen community relationships and gain support in navigating Austin nonprofit boards.
THE BOARD MENTORS OF COLOR PROGRAM supports new and experienced board members of color by matching them with established community leaders as mentors and provides opportunities to develop community leadership skills, build & deepen community relationships and gain support in navigating Austin nonprofit boards. Over the course of 2019, program participants are matched with mentors in a group mentoring model, meet 4-6 times a year and deepen their relationships with established community leaders. Our 2019 goals are to match 10 mentors with up to 50 mentees in a group mentoring model.
The Board Mentors of Color program supports new and experienced board members of color by matching them with an experienced mentor. This mentorship help participants navigate mainstream boards, learn from the lived experience of the mentors and address issues focused on diversity, equity and inclusion at the board table.
We’ve selected the trailblazers, groundbreakers, respected and experienced leaders in the Austin community. Take a look at the 2019 Mentors of Color.
