Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and the Nonprofit Sector: Building an Inclusive Culture
Fostering inclusive workspaces is an enduring value that helps make our sector more sustainable and is beneficial to all employees. Today, over 30 percent of the U.S. population are BIPOC, yet, only 10 percent of nonprofits have leaders of color. Our calling as individuals responsible for conceiving a vision for our sector’s future is to challenge and change this reality.

- Challenge stereotypes about the role BIPOC play and other perceived barriers to DEI. Explore the impact on both the micro (leadership styles, communication patterns, decision-making) and macro (institutional policies, practices, and culture) levels
- Identify practical tools to build an inclusive culture in the workplace and how to apply these values in daily operations
