READ: “#NonprofitKarens: What they look like and how you can spot one!
By Dominique Calixte, Associate Director of Annual Giving and Special Events, YW Boston

Many of us know what a #Karen looks like and how to spot her — but what about the more specific #NonprofitKaren? Do we know what she looks like?

Dominique does the good work of laying it out clearly for us, and not only that, she talks about the historical pattern of white women who hoard power and the lingering and lasting effects that they have as barriers to BIPOC advancement.

Dominque goes even further and gives us a great ways on how to NOPE a #NonprofitKaren when we realize we are dealing with one. Read her essay!

READ: “5 reasons your development planning sucks
By Nikkia Johnson, development and operations professional

When Nikkia “officially” entered the nonprofit sector with energy and passion — after spending years doing grassroots fundraising — she found that a new world that actually was not receptive to new ideas. She kept being told, “That’s not how we do things.”

Rather than be absolutely discouraged by the walls and the barriers thrown up, Nikkia started investigating and learning — why did things have to be done the way they had been?

This led her to community-centric fundraising principles — and since then, she hasn’t looked back. “5 reasons your development planning sucks,” is an essay that lays out some knowledge that Nikkia has fought to absorb. Read it!
