Diversity and Inclusion
- Why Now?
For years, nonprofits have been trying to find ways to address diversity and inclusion (D&I). Many start out with forming a committee, publishing a diversity statement, or looking to HR for workforce approaches.
Length: 75 min.
Measuring success in diversity and inclusion efforts [beyond the numbers] has proved difficult over the years. True success would mean focusing on changing our attitudes and behavior.
So how do we begin to measure the way we think, speak, and feel? How can we really embrace diversity and be more inclusive? How do we measure our success?
Join us to learn how over 100 nonprofit leaders approached these questions and more during a year-long study in 2010 conducted by Immense Business Solutions.
Class participants will learn:
- The importance of embracing diversity and inclusion and why it is still relevant in today’s workplace and governance
- Getting beyond the numbers, diversity statements and focusing on changing attitudes and behavior
- Overcoming challenges with diversity and inclusion programs
- Measuring success
