Your organization’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion must reach beyond the DEI committee or equity officer. A DEI policy and a focus on racial equity have implications that stretch across an organization, including hiring practices, event planning, equipment acquisition, technology roadmap development, and beyond.
This course will address and inform the decision-making practices that demonstrate a commitment — or lack of commitment — to racial equity. You’ll learn how nonprofits have infused diversity, equity, and inclusion rooted in racial equity into all aspects of organizational operation.
You’ll build the skills you need to create opportunities for all staff (most importantly staff of color, LGBQTIA+, and staff with disabilities) to authentically and meaningfully engage with internal DEI conversations, decisions, and strategic planning.
You’ll examine how technology decisions and practices are connected with DEI work. You’ll come away from this course with an understanding of how organizational DEI practices relate to technology in the nonprofit context, as well as your organization’s technology roadmap.
It’s best if you come to this course interested in building a foundation in racial equity and DEI work.

Great work. This is not an easy topic, but you brought your audience with you and made it safe to talk about race equity in a professional context.- Former course participant
Senior Manager of Equity and Accountability
I'm originally from Central Kansas and am a citizen of the Navajo Nation. I've worked in nonprofits for the past 16 years, primarily Boys & Girls Clubs and youth development organizations. I'm passionate about nonprofit community engagement, organizational best practices, youth development, and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
I began my professional DEI work with Pacific Educational Group's three-year cohort/professional development initiative "Beyond Diversity: Courageous Conversations" while working for the Boys & Girls Club and Lawrence Public School in 2009. Coupled with my lived experience as a Black and Navajo professional, I have served on previous organizations' equity teams and been a facilitator for DEI (rooted in racial equity) in the workplace and nonprofit programming.
