Podcast: Our Radical Vision for Change

"The typical nonprofit has constrained resources and overworked staff, with limited access to professional development opportunities. Rusty Stahl, CEO and Founder of Fund the People, is advocating for something radically different. In this episode of Social Change Diaries, Rusty makes the case for an industry-wide overhaul of how we invest in the nonprofit workforce."

The Social Change Diaries podcast is dedicated to exploring pivotal aspects of the social change sector, from the perspective of the experts who live and breathe the work of changing our world for the better. The show is hosted by Vanessa Wakeman, CEO of the Wakeman Agency. Each season is dedicated to a specific theme that is at the forefront of the sector. The episode featuring Fund the People's ideas is part of Season 3, which focuses on leadership issues. We invite you to take a listen to the interview! Other episodes across the three seasons feature an array of incredible thinkers and doers in the field - it's worth a listen.

Seeking Case Study Ideas on "Talent Justice"

Fund the People seeks your ideas for potential case studies of foundations or nonprofits that are doing exemplary work investing in intersectional racial equity in the nonprofit workforce (within one or more organizations). Share your ideas for a case study, or encourage colleagues at other organizations to do so! Use or share this link to our Case Study Idea Collection Form!

Any resulting case studies will become part of Fund the People's Talent Justice Initiative. The Initiative will produce research, tools, and trainings that aim to increase the access, advancement, and ascension of people of color and other constituencies in nonprofit careers. Initial products will be piloted in spring 2019 -- keep your eyes on this newsletter for updates!
