Anti-racism and equity resources

Resources For Your Nonprofit

As nonprofit leaders, it is important to engage in deep dialogue, learning and conversation. The nonprofits you lead are often expected to rapidly respond to community needs during times of injustice, pandemics, public health uncertainty, systemic racism, food insecurity, natural disasters and policy shifts. When gathered together, we had conversations at our Nonprofit Labs about how our nonprofits intersected with these issues when it came to fundraising, communications, social media, board development, leadership, human resources and organizational management. When the​ ​world​ ​and ​our​ ​local​ ​community ​seem like they are constantly shifting, your community looks to you. The question that we ask at every single one of our Nonprofit Labs during our opening session is: What are you doing to create change in your community? Well, that question is even more important today.  

We have curated a list of helpful resources on diversity, equity and inclusion and are always adding more. Would you like us to list your resources as well? Please contact us at info@nonprofitlearninglab.org
