Local: In The Mission : Today's Mission

Local: In The Mission : Today's Mission: "Earlier this month the San Jose Mercury News reported that the Urban Institute released a study that found that even though Latinos make up one third of the California population, only six percent of executive director positions at nonprofits are held by Latinos. Additionally, only 9 percent of Board of Directors seats are held by Latinos.

San Francisco is defying these numbers. The research also references a study done by the University of San Francisco and CompassPoint that measures nonprofits with budgets between $500,000 and $15 million. They found that in nearly 30 percent of San Francisco nonprofits, at least half their management is of color and only 20 percent of the organizations had no people of color in the board."
