IDEA Impact: Alford Group Mentoring and Leadership Development Program
AFP membership data and other studies show that female fundraisers represent at least 70 percent of the fundraising profession. Yet, research shows that roughly 70 percent of senior fundraising leadership positions are held by males. Furthermore, most nonprofit boards are comprised of males over the age of 50—a trend that increases as the size of an organization grows.
To address this issue, the IDEA Impact: Alford Group Mentoring and Leadership Development Program was created to provide support and guidance to women in the profession and to help develop their leadership skills so that they grow and sustain the profession.
WII is committed to equity and encourages applications from all qualified candidates. Our goal is to attract and develop highly talented women from diverse backgrounds, allowing the program to benefit from a wide variety of experiences and perspectives.
