As the community development field moved from grassroots activities to professionalization, this shift led to less racial diversity in the field and too few people of color in decision-making positions. Today, though many land banks and other community development nonprofits serve areas with a large percentage of residents of color, their boards and leadership are not representative of residents and their needs. But a new wave of leaders–who come from the communities they represent–is also emerging.
Leaders of Color in Land Banking will feature three women of color in land bank leadership across the country. This panel will highlight the communities they serve, their professional journeys to their current roles, and the equitable change they are working towards at their organizations.
