EverTrue Launches New “Mentorship Matters” Podcast Examining the Power of Inclusive Mentorship

EverTrue recently launched a new podcast, Mentorship Matters, which will examine the current and future landscape of fundraising leaders and how intentional mentorship can build a more diverse and inclusive talent pool to serve the advancement and nonprofit industries.

The EverTrue Studios Podcast Network (www.evertrue.com/studios) is now home to a sixth original podcast.

This month, EverTrue announced the launch of the new Mentorship Matters podcast, which will be hosted by long-time advancement leader and founding member of the Black Leaders in Philanthropy Initiative, Kim Nyoni. On this EverTrue original podcast, Kim will interview leaders from the advancement and non-profit sectors, DEI leaders from the for-profit field, and new and aspiring fundraising talent to explore how fundraising can be a destination profession that represents the mosaic of students and communities our organizations serve.

Reflecting on his decision to host the Mentorship Matters podcast, Kim say, “I have a story to tell. My guests have a story to tell. I am passionate about combining forces with other advancement folks to make this field more equitable and inclusive for the next generation of fundraising leaders – and partnering with EverTrue to launch the Mentorship Matters podcast is a really exciting step towards a better future for the industry.” 

On the Mentorship Matters podcast, Kim will host conversations around topics including:

The role advancement leaders play in equitable recruitment, featuring Floyd Akins, Vice President for Advancement at the University of Toledo;

Mentoring girls and developing leaders, featuring Jessica Love, Executive Director of AfricAid;

Mentoring amidst a big capital campaign, featuring Laura Padron, Senior Vice President for Advancement at the UCONN Foundation;

The role of HBCUs in mentoring the next generation of African American leaders, featuring Anthony Jenkins, President of The Coppin State University;

And many more.

“There’s so much evidence that mentorship makes a difference in a person’s life trajectory and career path. Mentorship is about selfless service and human connection and we can all play a bigger part in it. Kim’s experience in the advancement space and his dedication to mentorship of aspiring and underrepresented fundraisers make him the right host for this podcast,” says EverTrue CEO, and Founder, Brent Grinna. 

At EverTrue, mentorship has always been a huge part of our ethos. We believe intentional and inclusive mentorship is a powerful way to bring top talent to the field of philanthropy. It is what will nurture folks to commit to the important work of fundraising and thrive in their roles. And it is what will build the next generation of fundraising leaders who will uphold the mission, vision, and values of our nation’s most influential institutions. 

The Mentorship Matters podcast can be found on EverTrue’s media hub, EverTrue Studios (evertrue.com/studios).
