Further Together Registration

Further Together: Leadership in the Nonprofit Community Among People of Color

On November 13 and November 16, CNE is hosting discussions for people of color working in or volunteering for nonprofits in our communities. These events are designed to foster relationships and discuss opportunities to strengthen and support leaders and leadership development.

These events are free and open to anyone who identifies as a person of color working for or with nonprofit organizations. Registration is requested by November 1 for planning purposes.

Kellie Sauls will facilitate both discussions, while Vu Le will join the second conversation. The two events are meant to build on each other — please plan to attend both. 

Kellie Sauls has professional experience leading diversity recruiting and initiatives for schools at both University of Virginia and the University of Texas, Austin. She has worked for community-based organizations, therapeutic service organizations, and an early childhood education school. While in Charlottesville, she engaged in board service, on the Steering Committee of TEDxCharlottesville, and on a CACF giving circle grants committee. She is a member of the inaugural class of CNE’s Board Academy.

Vu Le is the Executive Director of Rainier Valley Corps, a Seattle nonprofit that promotes social justice by developing leaders of color, strengthening organizations led by communities of color, and fostering collaboration between diverse communities. Known for his pointed observations delivered with a sense of humor, Le has been featured in dozens, if not hundreds, of his own blog posts, found at NonprofitAF.com.
