Name: Moving Beyond Diversity to Inclusion
Date: October 9, 2019
Time: 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM EDT
Presenter Trina Jackson
Event Description:
Workshop Description

Nonprofit organizations have worked to diversify their staff and increase representation of people across race, class, gender, sexual orientation, ability, and religious and other culturally diverse backgrounds.

But how do organizations create an environment where people feel they can actively participate, where their contributions are respected and valued? This workshop is focused on racial diversity and taking the next step toward moving beyond the individualism of diversity to the systemic and cultural change needed to build inclusive organizations.

Learning Objectives

  • Sharing of best practices on how to move from representation to inclusion
  • Understanding the role of implicit bias and impact on leadership, hiring, staffing, and decision-making
  • Learning to have courageous conversations about race
  • The role of intentionality — orientation to an inclusive culture that is self-perpetuating through organizational systems, policies, and practices

Discussion-based learning

  • The commitment and leadership needed throughout this long process
  • Developing awareness about white dominant cultural norms and bias against people of color
  • Understanding micro-aggressions
  • Differentiating between diversity and inclusion
  • Understanding power and privilege
  • Defining institutional racism and its manifestations within an organization
  • Allowing for the co-creation of ideas

Target Audience

Staff at all levels of an organization can benefit from this training, which examines the basic concepts and distinctions between diversity, inclusion and equity. Organizations that are at the early stages of considering how diversity, inclusion, and equity are integrated into their work or beginning an internal process will especially benefit.
