At next week’s Impact Solutions meetup, we’re getting comfortable with the elephant in the room.

Philly, like many cities around the nation, has a diversity problem. Our city is about 55 percent non-white, and across the nonprofit, for-profit and government sectors alike, we as a city need to keep this issue as a priority until change is implemented.

At Generocity, we are creating spaces for those conversations that need to happen. This month we launched our editorial calendar, starting with “Leaders of Color,” in which we are featuring projects and organizations run by minority leaders. We’ll also have guests posts from Philly leaders of color on a regular basis where they’ll discuss leadership and/or working in Philly’s impact sector.

Next Wednesday, join us for our monthly meeting at the Benjamin’s Desk, 601 Walnut St., to hear local leaders of color talk about their projects and current work in Philly. We’ll hear from:

  • Erica Atwood of First Degree Consulting, who also wrote our first “leaders of color” guest post
  • Otis Hackney, chief education officer of the City of Philadelphia
  • Kellan White, political director for Katie McGinty for US Senate

Join us to hear from these leaders and share your own experiences as a leader of color, or come and get to know the truly diverse set of people who are dedicated to local issues in Philly.
