Associated Black Charities’ Board Pipeline Leadership Development Project is committed to developing a pipeline of professionals from racially under-represented communities to serve on boards in our region.The Board Pipeline Leadership Project helps to provide pathways of access and opportunity. It promotes equity, expanding the diversity of nonprofit boards, by opening doors for an expanded use of the “time, talent, and treasure” that qualified professionals of color can bring to board service for the benefit of Baltimore and its surrounding areas and region.
Many of the nonprofits seeking professionals with racially diverse backgrounds are also nonprofits that serve low income communities of color. This provides a double bottom line “return on investment” on behalf of the community and on behalf of the professionals of color.
The Board Leadership Pipeline convenes for one evening on three consecutive weeks. This training equips interested candidates with the skills and techniques needed to be more effective board members.
We invite you to become an Associated Black Charities’ Board Pipeline Professional. Please submit your bio and resume, as two separate documents with contact information on each, along with a short e-mail of interest to – or contact for more information — Ms. A. Adar Ayira, Project Manager, More in the Middle Initiative, firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The board pipeline development program definitely prepared me for the work that I am now engaged in with Woodbourne. Words alone do not allow me to properly articulate my gratitude to you, Adar and ABC. This experience is blessing my life. I am both honored and humbled to have been a participant and will continue to strive to positively represent the Board Pipeline Leadership Development Program and ABC.”

Associated Black Charities’ (ABC) Board Pipeline Leadership Development project continues the organization’s commitment to developing a pipeline of professionals from under-represented communities to serve on boards of directors of nonprofit organizations in our region. The Board Pipeline Leadership Project helps to provide the pathways of access and opportunity that promote equity, opening doors for an expanded use of the time, talent, and treasure that these individuals can bring to board service for the benefit of Baltimore and the surrounding region.
The Board Pipeline – In Support of Women’s Leadership series, is a training open to women of all races that maintains ABC’s tradition of providing an excellent foundation for board service while also providing participants with a historical framework, analytical perspectives, and tools for understanding structural barriers and creating alliances across race, gender, national origin, and more.
Emerging and seasoned professionals commit one evening per week for four weeks of intensive training. A Meet and Greet reception introducing Board Pipeline Professionals to nonprofit organization representatives currently recruiting for board members will be held in 2014.
The Board Pipeline – In Support of Women’s Leadership series is supported by a grant from women’s leadership organization Network 2000. Since beginning the Board Pipeline project in 2009, there has always been a waiting list for the next session. For more information about your nonprofit being added to our Meet and Greet Invitation List, or if you are interested in being considered for the 2014 Board Pipeline – In Support of Women’s Leadership session, please send your inquiries to email@example.com.
