Tips to Identify Bias in Nonprofit Programs

While nonprofits have a mission to serve those with the greatest needs, some organization programs might actually end up excluding the very people it is designed to help. Identifying bias, microaggressions, or other issues primarily on an individual level do not change systemic biases that affect bigger issues. Instead, it is important that nonprofit leaders learn to examine the organizational culture and practices that initially created the bias to bring about necessary change.
