Event Description

Beyond the Buzzwords: Creating a Culture of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion within the Organization

Liliana Cabrera, Nonprofit Consultant, NAO Latina Associates for Collaborative Endeavors (LACE)

People-centered approaches are leading strategies and practices that are impacting how we do our work today: for our communities, for our evolving world, and the organization.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion have the ability to shift your entire organization to better serve the community, create a positive work environment, and support longevity of the organization.

Now that you’ve heard the words, this workshop is designed to support your organization’s implementation of EDI at every level.

Learning Goals:

  • Define EDI with your organization
  • Develop your EDI lens for your organization
  • Map EDI at all entry points to your organization

Area of Nonprofit Excellence - Leadership & Culture

Every learning opportunity NAO offers is aligned with one of nine areas of our Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence that NAO believes are critical to every nonprofit’s effectiveness and success. Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential for a thriving, effective and successful nonprofit; therefore, DE&I is embedded across all nine areas.

This event focuses on Leadership & Culture. For additional resources in this category, visit: Leadership & Culture.
