Advancing Racial Equity on Nonprofit Boards Fellowship extends nomination period

The Advancing Racial Equity on Nonprofit Boards Fellowship has extended its nomination period until June 20.

The fellowship is accepting nominations for Black or Latinx mid-level members of organizations to participate in the inaugural Advancing Racial Equity on Nonprofit Boards (ARENB) Fellowship.

The program was created by Brian Butler, president and CEO of Vistra Communications, Ernest Hooper, vice president of communications at United Way Suncoast, and Bill Goede, president of Bank of America Tampa Bay, with the help of the Nonprofit Leadership Center.

“The Advancing Racial Equity on Nonprofit Boards Fellowship is a tangible way for Tampa Bay businesses to demonstrate their commitment to racial equity,” says Butler.

The ARENB Fellowship is designed to:

  • Advance racial and ethnic diversity, equity and inclusion on nonprofit boards throughout Tampa Bay
  • Deepen the board governance knowledge and skills of professionals of color
  • Equip select nonprofits to genuinely welcome participating board fellows and ensure their organizations are ready, and committed, to fostering more inclusive and equitable boards and cultures
