Are you generally curious about the career paths, personal stories, challenges, and triumphs of leaders in the nonprofit sector? Do you want to hear unique perspectives from black and brown leaders in this space? Are you an emerging black and/or brown leader, seeking to become more equipped and empowered with narratives that might help you navigate your own challenges and capitalize on your successes in the field? 

No matter where your curiosities, needs, or interests lie, #BAWSEWITHACAUSE is just the podcast for you. In each podcast episode join me, Naimah Bilal, as I interview influential leaders telling their own #BAWSEWITHACAUSE stories which seek to inform and encourage other black and brown nonprofit leaders, activists, and community organizers. Episodes include thoughtful and frank conversations about nonprofit leadership, best practices in management, advancing the practices of diversity and inclusion in our sector, and what it looks like for leaders of color to decolonize our thinking to affect positive change. We hope you’ll join us and subscribe! 

But there's so much more to Bawse With a Cause! On this site are professional development resources including enterprise equity research, lists of professional organizations, leadership training opportunities, and stand out organizations whose missions support the advancement of underrepresented professionals in the field. #BAWSEWITHACAUSE is committed to better position leaders with the information and resources they need to become more informed, supported and empowered. We will change the world together- will you join us?

Thank you for visiting our site! We hope you find meaningful information, joy, hope, and inspiration!
