Belonging & Inclusion: Leading During Uncomfortable Times
April 7th and April 28th: the Nonprofit Leadership Initiative is offering “Belonging & Inclusion: Leading During Uncomfortable Times”:
“Between a pandemic, a healthcare system pushed to the brink, economic woes, and identity politics, you might find yourself thinking that you do not have time or skills to create a metaphorical table setting in your organization for underrepresented or marginalized people.
At this two-part workshop facilitated by Us 2 Behavioral Health Care you’ll learn why this is the perfect time to consider how inclusive and equitable your nonprofit organization truly is.
As a leader, you are responsible for creating a culture that is inclusive of people and fosters belonging. We recognize the challenges of these goals in a diverse community and are prepared to help you develop excellent and inclusive workspaces for your nonprofit organization.
Who should attend:
Nonprofit staff and board members in a position to lead or influence decisions. Whether you feel you are leading your organization in diversity and inclusion or feel like you have been left behind with little direction on where to begin, this workshop is for you.
Please limit your attendance to 3 individuals from your organization, since space is limited. If circumstances allow, we will reopen registration to allow more participants from the same organization.
