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.
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.
