Event Description

Is the Culture of Your Organization Truly Supporting Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Goals?

Gilda Montenegro-Fix, Cultural Agility Training & Consultant, Celebrate Diversity  

How do you find out what the culture of your organization is? When we are in it, we "know it" because we live it, but being objectively aware of our organization's culture -and its impact- can be a little trickier. Sometimes there is a disconnect between what we set out to do and what gets in the way to achieving it. Looking at what creates these gaps will help us stay on track. Even with a good outline of steps, we may be unaware of other forces at play. Come discover what some of those may be! In this session, we will:

  1. Explore the use of assessments to guide our Cultural Agility Journey
  2. Go beyond the linear path to a deeper understanding of what your organizational culture is 
  3. Walk away feeling inspired to do this work!

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.
