The New Philanthropists is excited to introduce its 2021 Mentors for the Board Mentors of Color Program. These gamechangers have made a significant difference in the community and have committed their careers to uplifting voices and paving the way. We are thrilled to have them share their lived experiences and lead their mentees into board service!
The Board Mentors of Color Program brings together community leaders, that are aligned with our mission, and connects them with board prospects of color in order to provide mentorship and guidance on their board service journey. This program also creates a safe space for deep conversations to happen around race, and is fundamental in creating opportunity and access for leaders of color to take a seat at the table. We invite you to learn more about each mentor and celebrate their participation!
