NPW Launches First-Ever Affinity Group for Nonprofit Personnel of Color in Westchester - May 19

The launch of NPW's Peer to Peer Affinity Group for Nonprofit Personnel of Color took place on the heels of our April 7th forum, Taking Action: Charting an Anti-Racist Path Forward in Westchester’s Nonprofit Sector, which was attended by more than 200 people. At that time NPW’s 2022 Report, based on years of community reflection, education, and dialogue, was also launched and four key issue areas essential to building anti-racist systems were reviewed. 

Supporting people of color to lead is one of those areas and was the impetus for the formation of the Peer to Peer Affinity Group which was launched on May 19th and attend by more than 70 people. Lucria Ortiz, NPW Board Member and President & CEO Yonkers Family YMCA, Dr. Alexandria Connally, NPW Equity Consultant and CEO/ Founder of Culturally Responsive Environments and Discipline and Michelle A. Nicholas, NPW Board Member and SVP, Chief Diversity Officer and Director of Community Development, PCSB Bank, planned and facilitated the group. 



Please take this 3 minute survey today to help support efforts to advance more equitable contracting between the nonprofit sector and government partners in Westchester County.
