Event Details

PEOPLE OF COLOR NONPROFIT LEADERS SYMPOSIUM:
Nonprofits + HBCUs: Teaming up to Create a Pipeline of Young Black Professionals Into the Nonprofit & Philanthropic Sectors

As Black students begin to consider viable careers, the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors often go unmentioned by advisers. Many view the nonprofit field as low-paying and stagnant, and countless others still think of the sectors as volunteerism. This event seeks to turn that notion on its head. Black professionals from the nonprofit and philanthropic fields will introduce students to Professional Giving as a lucrative, multi-faceted, and lasting career choice.

  • A Call-to-Action will be issued during this event, highlighting the importance and significance of the HBCU experience and urging the audience to support HBCUs - even if they did not matriculate through one.
  • High-level HBCU representatives will be on hand to share knowledge and strategies with the nonprofit sector centered around attracting young Black professionals into an overwhelmingly undiversified field.
  • Philanthropic and Nonprofit agents will learn how they can both partner with HBCUs and actively recruit young Black professionals.
  • Students will be introduced to the many career paths available to them within the giving sectors.

This event is brought to you by the Together SC Black Nonprofit Leaders Group and is being offered during the 2020 SC Nonprofit Summit. Please click here to register for the Summit.

**The Symposium is a public, no-cost event. You do not have to register or attend the Summit to gain entry, but we hope you will!** 

Refreshments will be served
