Building Equitable Onramps to Nonprofit Careers

Webinar 2 in the Talent Justice Series

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

11:30am-12:45pm (PT) / 2:30-3:45pm (ET)

Talent justice requires intentional efforts designed to disrupt inequitable systems and processes that people of color and other marginalized communities face in accessing work and advancing their careers in the nonprofit sector. Drawing on Fund the People’s Talent Justice research and tools, participants will explore how inequities manifest in nonprofit recruitment, hiring, compensation. We’ll cover strategies that promote retention at nonprofits and career sustainability in the sector. Webinar presenters include Sasanka Jinadasa, Manager, Equity Strategy and Training, Center for Urban and Racial Equity, Jill Eisenhard, Founder & Executive Director, Red Hook Initiative, and Yolanda Caldera-Durant, Vice President, Fund the People.  To access all of the Talent Justice resources, including the full report, executive summary, toolkit, and infographics visit
