The Afterschool Leadership Landscape: Supporting and Strengthening Racial Equity

This issue brief explores research data, as well as interview and survey data, to frame efforts to support and retain afterschool leaders of color. It suggests approaches for changes in institutional structures and policies that may currently pose barriers to people of color advancing up the career ladder. There are also recommendations for supporting emerging leaders and building skills both on technical management like budgeting, staffing, and board development, as well as competencies needed to produce system change.
