About the Event
Nonprofit leaders seeking to create and maintain racially diverse environments must clarify their own bearings on the interplay between social identity, social bias, and social justice. They must also determine how to achieve diversity without divisiveness with true inclusivity.
This program provides a unified and unifying framework for understanding diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will share a method for creating a shared commitment among staff in order to pursue REDI with humility, candor, and empathy, as well as ways to continually monitor a sense of belonging.
