What does it look like to practice and lead equity and inclusion within our nonprofits? How do we transcend histories of bias and privilege that create disparate outcomes in society and in the nonprofit sector?

The Equity & Inclusion Leaders Network (EILN) provides regular learning opportunities, tangible tools and strategies, and a chance to engage in direct and honest conversations about how to lead, integrate, and practice equity, inclusion, and systemic change within your organization. We encourage nonprofit staff, board members, and volunteers to attend.
