Workshop description: 
With a diversity of experience, expertise, and perspectives, a nonprofit is in a stronger position to plan for the future, manage risk, make prudent decisions, and take full advantage of opportunities. But diversity doesn’t work without inclusion strategies and practices. Just recruiting and hiring won’t allow you to truly take advantage of the power of a diverse workplace. A diverse and inclusive workplace has increased creativity – a variety of different people from various backgrounds working together will get you better solutions to problems. Diversity encourages personal growth – employees are encouraged to learn new ideas, perspective and connect intellectually and personally to different people. And, employees who have different worldviews can think more independently. If you have similar people at an organization, it’s harder to solve complex problems.

This workshop will include:

  • The importance of building an inclusive and equitable culture
  • How to create a common definition for diversity, inclusion and equity
  • Understanding the business case for workplace diversity, inclusion and equity
  • Ways to reduce institutional and interpersonal bias
  • Practical exercises to explore and discover participant's identities
