Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

NAPAC Foundation goal is to be center-point of Nigerian-American progress in the America engaging, informing, and empowering Nigerian-Americans in the United States through education, health and wellness, and economic empowerment.

We have different strategies from collaboration with other institutions and government, playing to our strength with both of our human and financial resources.

a. Finding and sourcing organizations that are already in this field and collaborating with them, without us starting from scratch thereby fastrack the outcome.

b. Figure out our organization to figure out our strengths in financial and human capacity, and using that to the benefits of our community and issues that we care about.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
