This session follows up our July Forum on Hiring and Keeping A Diverse, Inclusive Team. Nonprofit organizations committed to creating an inclusive culture must internalize the answer to the question: Why is diversity important to your organization? Commitment to creating a culturally competent organization begins with awareness, acknowledgment from leadership, and an organizational plan and strategy. How do you build a culture where employees internalize their understanding of privilege and race, and have courageous conversations? From implicit bias to microaggressions, diversity in all its forms is critical if we are to meet the needs of our stakeholders and truly advance the mission of our organizations. You are warmly invited to this engaging and interactive conversation about organizational readiness as it relates to diversity, inclusion and equity.
