Native American Women, Leadership and the Native American Nonprofit Sector

This report examines gender and leadership within the Native American nonprofit sector. Overall, it finds that the leadership ranks of Native American nonprofits look very different from the national or mainstream nonprofit sector, with Native American nonprofits largely headed by women. This report is one of few that exist that attempts to examine leadership trends within a specific nonprofit subsector, namely looking at gendered leadership within mostly rural and remote reservation-based nonprofits that primarily serve Native American populations.
