Our Approach

The work of human resources and finance leaders is intertwined with how we live into values of justice. 

Questions of organizational design (how we make decisions, how we’re structured, and how we build our internal culture and systems) are all related to equity. The way we approach things such as budgeting, hiring, and financial transparency, can either replicate or interrupt oppression.

We want this to be a space where we are learning to interrupt and dismantle oppressive practices instead of building on inequities of the past. 

If that vision speaks to you, we hope you'll join us!

How Do Our Networks Build Peer Power?

Through our listservs, hundreds of Bay Area and California nonprofit leaders exchange questions, advice, challenges, and wisdom as a form of mutual support. The listserv is very active, populated with many experienced folks, and full of helpful information. Joining is a great way to break out of the isolation that usually comes with holding finance and human resource roles in nonprofit organizations. 

Our Peer Networks Cafés (online gatherings) are open and honest gathering spaces that prioritize connection. This is a space for leaders in our networks to:

  • share fears, challenges, and hopes
  • explore how to center equity in our leadership and decision-making 
  • discuss day-to-day responses and longer-term planning
  • offer peer support (including hope and love)! 

Some of the cafe topics from 2022 were: compensation; employee wellness; capacity, retention, and engagement; remote work logistics; HR/Finance staffing; working less; and improving org culture and policies to be equitable, empathetic, inclusive, liberatory, safe, transparent.
