Coaching for Racial Equity

Leadership Development RPBC Coaching

Program Overview

ABFE provides culturally-relevant leadership coaching to support a broad range of its members and allied partners within the philanthropic sector. We offer capacity building resources that strengthen both leadership and management skills for addressing the complex issues that face Black communities, while simultaneously mitigating the effects of long-term institutional racism and discriminatory policy implementation.

ABFE Leadership Coaches combine expertise from its racial equity framework and toolkit, Responsive Philanthropy in Black Communities (RPBC), with the coaching expertise grounded in the fundamental principles of ontological learning to produce:

  • Culturally-significant professional and personal development cohort learning experiences for Black and allied leaders and;
  • A network of Black and allied advocates for racial equity throughout philanthropy, including associations, foundations, giving circles, individual donors, trustees and nonprofit practitioners

Program Objectives

  • To cultivate and build the capacity of leaders in philanthropy to be effective advocates for Black communities, and by extension, other all communities of color.
