Crises as a Catalyst 2


Times of crisis challenge social sector leaders in extraordinary ways. The unprecedented circumstances brought forth by COVID-19 and recent acts of police brutality call on each of us to individually reflect, collectively support, and intentionally adapt our work to meet the urgent needs of this moment. We see this as a catalyst to evolve our leadership practices toward a long term goal of a world free of systemic oppression and rooted in race equity, where all people thrive. The current crises that we are facing demand that we evolve who we are as leaders and ignite an inner transformation that can sustain the work needed to support Black, Indigenous, and communities of color in the social sector as a whole.
