Taking Action: Charting an Anti-Racist Path Forward in Westchester’s Nonprofit Sector 


On April 7th, More than 200 people attended NPW’s forum designed to offer action steps to advance racial equity throughout Westchester County’s nonprofit sector.

Taking Action: Charting an Anti-Racist Path Forward in Westchester’s Nonprofit Sector - A report based on community reflection, education, and dialogue can be downloaded HERE.

NPW will continue to break down the report and recommendations in the weeks, months and years to come. As we know, it is impossible to claim you are anti-racist without doing the work.

Thank you to our esteemed speakers and panelists: Anahaita Kotval, Dr. Alexandria Connally, Commissioner Maria Imperial, Maria Dautruche, Michelle A. Nicholas, Karen Cheeks-Lomax, Jirandy Martinez, Joanne Dunn, and Tiffany S.W. Hamilton.


Special thanks to event sponsors: Pace University, YWCA, United Way, PCSB and the Westchester Library System


The full recording of the forum is now available on our YouTube Channel Here. Quotes and clips from our speakers and panelists will be released soon. Here we offer reflections from our colleagues at PCSB Bank. 

The open discussion on racism in Westchester’s nonprofit sector was both informative and inspiring.  Inspiring because the panel passionately voiced a true pathway to overcome this important issue in such a way that you know change is going to come. As a community Bank, we continue to support open discussions like these and the nonprofit sector across our footprint.”  - Joseph D. Roberto, President, CEO & Chairman of the Board, PCSB Bank

“It is exciting to experience a community committed to advancing racial equity throughout Westchester County’s nonprofit sector. As a community-focused Bank, we believe in an inclusive, representative and equitable society. I am beyond proud of NPW and the Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee and everyone who contributed. The report is not the final chapter. In many ways, it is a beginning and has provided a platform for essential conversations.” – Michelle A. Nicholas, Senior Vice President, Chief Diversity Officer and Director of Community Development PCSB Bank; NPW Board Member and Chair NPW Racial Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Committee
