NYC Service & NPCC Release Report on the Current State of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion on NYC Nonprofit Boards

October 26, 2018

A new report shows that New York City nonprofit boards have diversity problems. It’s not that nonprofit leaders want it to be so; it’s just that they just don’t know how to promote greater inclusion, according to the study published on Oct. 25 by the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York and NYC Service. “This report encourages a frank conversation about the systemic and individual barriers that we all struggle with, and offers recommendations and strategies to truly center equity in their work,” Sharon Stapel, president of NPCC, said in a press release. Here are the conclusions from the report:

  • City nonprofit boards are not as diverse as the city at-large.
  • Diversity, equity and inclusion are not effectively implemented.
  • Better representation among nonprofit leaders matters.
  • Boards need to be more proactive and less resistant to change.
  • Boards may be promoting bias.

Here’s the full 38-page report:
