Study Finds Little Change in Foundation Staff Diversity
Despite efforts to advance diverse, inclusive, and equitable recruitment and retention practices, foundations have failed to increase the percentage of women and racial/ethnic minorities on staff and in leadership positions, a report from the Council on Foundations finds.
The report, The State of Change: An Analysis of Women and People of Color in the Philanthropic Sector, found that between 2006 and 2015 the share of women in full-time positions at foundations rose less than a percentage point, to 77 percent, while that of minorities increased by just 1.68 percentage points, from 22.65 percent to 24.33 percent. Moreover, among a matched set of foundations providing data over the last five years, the overall proportion of women and minorities in executive leadership positions did not change significantly, with women accounting for 55.1 percent of those in leadership positions in 2015, up from 53.6 percent in 2011, and minorities accounting for 12.4 percent, up from 11.2 percent.
To see the report go to https://www.cof.org/sites/default/files/documents/files/2017-Gender-Diversity-Report.pdf.
The study also found variations among organizations by asset size. For example, while foundations in the five-year matched set with assets of between $250 million and $750 million saw an increase of between 6 percentage points and 8 percentage points in the share of women in executive positions, those with assets of more than $750 million saw declines ranging from 0.5 percentage points to 3.8 percentage points (for those with assets of more than $2 billion).
The report suggests that reasons for the lack of progress on the diversity front may include the typically long tenures of foundation employees, especially at the executive level, which can limit opportunities for upward movement within organizations as well as entry into the field. In addition, many foundations have small staffs, which further limits recruitment opportunities. In 2015, for instance, the average foundation staff size for both full- and part-time employees was six, while the median was 13.

Board Day – Donor-Centered Fundraising: How to Hold on to Your Donors and Raise More Money
SPONSOR: Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) – San Antonio Chapter, Masters Leadership Program of Greater San Antonio Alumni Association, San Antonio Area Foundation. 
WHEN: September 27, 1-4 pm.
WHERE: Mays Family Center at the Witte Museum, (San Antonio, TX).
DESCRIPTION: Board Day is an annual conference that increases the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations by enhancing board governance.
Today's fundraising practices and beliefs were developed in a time when donors were less demanding, competition was less fierce, and fundraisers could rely on an abundant supply of people who were willing to give. But now wealth is shifting to a new kind of donor who questions more and is harder to reach. Additionally, the number of organizations raising money has exploded, and donors are trending towards supporting fewer causes. 
Join us for this interactive and forward-thinking seminar that answers the age-old question, "What do donors want?", and then articulates a practical strategy that satisfies donors' needs. Based on seven years of research and testing with hundreds of nonprofits and donors, Burk will share her statistically-supported fundraising philosophy and evidence-based communication and acknowledgement strategies that will enhance donor loyalty and inspire more generous giving. Copies of her book "Donor-Centered Fundraising" will be available for sale at the event.
Open to development professionals, communications staff, executive directors, board members, and any staff or volunteers who interact with donors.
COST: $60. To register go to https://give.saafdn.org/workshops-and-training/donorcenteredfundraising9-27-17.

WHERE: Mays Family Center at the Witte Museum, (San Antonio, TX).
DESCRIPTION: Board Day is an annual conference that increases the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations by enhancing board governance.
Backed by compelling research involving thousands of fundraisers, board members, CEOs and donors, Burk will demonstrate how board members can raise money and build relationships while engaging in activities they do best. As a result, donors agree their philanthropy is unleashed at a whole new level. Burk will reveal how nonprofits can bring staff attrition under control, demonstrate techniques to retain high-performing fundraisers, and talk about ways in which board members and staff can work together to effectively raise more money. Attendees will receive a free copy of her book "Donor-Centered Leadership". 
Exclusively for nonprofit board members, CEOs, and senior development officers.
