Five Programs Advancing Women Leaders in Boston and Beyond

While women make up a majority of the nonprofit workforce, they are still severely under-represented in leadership roles in the sector due to biases and structural barriers. According to the American Association of University Women report, “Broken Ladders: Barriers to Women’s Representation in Nonprofit Leadership” women make up 75% of jobs in the nonprofit, education, and philanthropic sectors, yet they hold far less than 75% of leadership positions in these organizations.  

Although a CEO position is just one type of nonprofit leadership position, a 2021 Chronicle of Philanthropy cover story on gender disparity in leadership roles throughout the nonprofit sector reports that for each additional million dollars in annual revenue, a nonprofit is 0.2 percent less likely to hire a woman as its CEO. While women were 60% of CEOs at organizations with budgets of $1 million or less, that number drops to 25% at groups with budgets of $50 million or more.  

Leadership programs that advocate for nonprofit women leaders are crucial in helping women advance their careers, and ultimately break barriers. Learn about just a few of the available programs and resources tailored to support women and women-identifying leaders.
