Nonprofits have been working to ensure that their staffs reflect the increasingly diverse society in which we live — and many organizations are making great strides. But there are a number of nonprofits who have been ahead of the curve, achieving better gender balance, hiring people from racially, ethnically, socioeconomically diverse backgrounds, along with making their workplaces more accessible to people with disabilities. What can we learn from their progress?
In the upcoming virtual forum, How to Build a Diverse Staff, Chronicle senior writer, Jim Rendon, meets with a panel of forward-thinking non profit leaders to discuss the steps they have taken to create diverse staff and foster a culture where different perspectives are welcome.
- What lessons have they learned?
- What challenges have they faced?
- And what advice would they share with other nonprofit leaders looking to deepen their diversity and inclusion initiatives?
