Shifting Power from the Inside Out: Lessons on Becoming Member-Led from Mujeres Unidas y Activas

General Material

Produced collaboratively by Mujeres Unidas y Activas and RoadMap, Shifting Power from the Inside Out offers a new framework for community-based organizations on the evolution from member-based to member-led organizational structure, culture and practice.

The report shares Mujeres Unidas y Activas’ journey towards:

  • Increasing representation of community members amongst leadership and staff.

  • Developing specific internal practices to ensure that immigrant women are encouraged to step up — and that US born women take a back seat — in organizational leadership.

  • Encouraging frank discussions about race, class and power.

  • Ending practices of white supremacy that limit the leadership of people of color.

  • Shifting towards a model of collaboration and authentic shared leadership.
