Shepastor: "An Invitation to participate in a research project..."

 Dear Shepastor Friends,

As many of you may know, I am a doctoral learner at Capella University in the School of Counseling and Human Services. I am writing to invite you to participate in a research study. This study is a part of my doctoral education program. Participation in this research is voluntary.

The purpose of this study is to answer the research question, “What are the lived experiences of inequity of African American women who have led or are leading a struggling, non-profit organization in America?” In this study, I will seek to learn about the lived experiences of inequity of African American women leading struggling, non-profit organizations in America. Within this context, the term “struggling” refers to organizations that are unstable and dysfunctional. This type of organization is sometimes called a “glass cliff” appointment. The “glass cliff” is a phenomenon describing the reality that women are more likely than men to be appointed to precarious leadership positions in unstable, dysfunctional organizations.

If you are an African American woman nonprofit leader and you are interested in participating in this study, or you know someone who may be, please email me directly at

Thank you!

Pastor Chris
