As nonprofit leaders, it is important to engage in deep dialogue, learning and conversation. The nonprofits you lead are often at the forefront of rapidly responding to community needs during times of injustice, pandemics, public health uncertainty, systemic racism, food insecurity, natural disasters and policy shifts. And before when we could gather 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,​ ​can​ ​seem​ ​like​ ​it​ ​is constantly shifting, your community, looks to you. The question that we ask --- at every single one of our Nonprofit Labs (when we did gather, and we will again) during our opening session is: What are you doing to create change in your community? Well, that question is ever more important today.  

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