BIPOC Leadership Circle

The BIPOC Leadership Circle (BLC) is designed to center, support, and address experiences of BIPOC leaders of cultural institutions.

Date | Location

November 5 - December 17, 2020 via Zoom Meeting

About the Program

Being a Black, Indigenous, Person of Color (BIPOC) in a predominantly white sector or organization has its challenges. Try doing that as a BIPOC person in a leadership position! Most organizations, even those that are primarily BIPOC, or BIPOC-friendly, do not offer systems of support and affirmation for BIPOC leaders.

This six-part series brings together BIPOC leaders of cultural institutions from across the nation to provide support, strategies, and systems of accountability in creating dynamic, new leadership models that center BIPOC experiences.

The BIPOC Leadership Circle will address the following issues and more:

  • How do we effectively lead and navigate organizations that were not designed for us? 

  • How do we ensure that we do not internalize or perpetuate systems of white supremacy? 

  • How do we mentor, sponsor, and support BIPOC colleagues and those we supervise when we rarely (if ever) receive mentoring ourselves? 

  • How do we guard against being tokenized, or worse, being pitted against one another?

  • How do we acknowledge and disrupt anti-Blackness and not allow our light-skin privilege and white adjacency to be used in support of structural racism?

  • How do we center race and antiracism with an intersectional frame that includes other identities and access points?
