DEI in the Nonprofit Sector
What does systematic racism mean and how does it impact us now? Learn about that and more from our recording webinar on diversity and inclusion!
Tomorrow, the Idaho Nonprofit Center staff – like most of you – will be enjoying a day off in observance of the Fourth of July. I think all of us on some level recognize and celebrate the origin of the holiday, but we don’t often take the time to look at it through a lens of current events and what it represents. To many of us, it’s a day off from work.
July 4, by all rights, is the date that is recognized as the beginning of the United States. For some, it’s a day of fun, barbecue cook-offs, family time, fireworks, and friends. For others, it is a reminder that they were initially excluded from the freedoms stated in the Declaration of Independence. Many individuals are still seeking the freedom of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The Idaho Nonprofit Center’s mission is to educate, advocate and collaborate in support of stronger nonprofits. We care deeply about our nonprofits AND the communities that we serve.
As an organization that serves the diverse nonprofit community of Idaho, we firmly believe there is no place for racism, injustice, and inequality.
We are saddened and outraged by the recent acts of violence and racism in our country.
We are committed to being a leader and working with the nonprofit community to raise awareness, and educate ourselves and develop policies and practices to better address diversity, equity, and inclusion.
