Event Description

Title
Advancing Equity & Inclusion In Our Daily Work

Presenter
Sara Curiel Paez, Senior Consultant, Nonprofit Association of Oregon

Equity and inclusion are both a moral imperative and good for nonprofit business and our society. Nonprofits are stronger when every board and staff member takes action in this direction.

Equity, as it relates to group differences, focuses on promoting justice, impartiality, and fairness within the procedures and processes of institutions or systems, as well as their distribution of resources. Tackling equity issues requires an understanding of the underlying or root causes of outcome disparities within our society.

Inclusion focuses on the behaviors and practices that seek out, invite, welcome, allow, engage, involve or in other ways include broad participation– particularly of disenfranchised and underrepresented groups– in information sharing, events, dialogue, input, creative initiatives, support, problem solving, decision making, and sharing of resources and control.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Get an overview of the effective NAO DE&I Framework
  • Discuss essential DEI definitions
  • Take a personal DEI assessment 
  • Learn how to work across differences
  • Understand the power of Mindsets in DE&I work
  • Gain tools to practice and continue the DE&I conversation

Who Should Attend?

This training is a primer for board and staff who are new to equity and inclusion and for more experienced board and staff members. Each person will be invited to assess their current capacity and use the training to gain new insights and set new goals.
