The New Philanthropists proudly announces the launch of the Board Mentors of Color program!
This unique opportunity supports new and experienced board members of color by matching them with established community leaders as mentors in order to develop community leadership skills, build & deepen community relationships and gain support in navigating Austin nonprofit boards. Throughout the rest of 2019, selected participants (mentees) are matched with mentors in a group mentoring model, meet 4-6 times a year and deepen their relationships with established community leaders. Mentees will be able to learn from the lived experiences of their mentors and address issues focused on diversity, equity and inclusion at the board table.
If you are interested in joining the program as a mentee, we are accepting applications up to July 25th.
