Event description
Diversity in the non-profit sector is critically important and it is unfortunately lacking.

About this event

If you look closely at any charity or non-profits list of beneficiaries you will find individuals of different genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities, ages and class. However, 70% of charity boards are comprised of men around the age of 60 and only 12 percent of board members in Canada’s non-profit sector are racialized. It is a similar picture when looking at the composition of staff and volunteers working in the non-profit sector. And the business case for diversity is strong:

• non-profit boards with more women involved engage in more fundraising and public policy advocacy;

• diversity can boost the quality of decision-making;

• a diverse workplace can encourage people to be more creative, more diligent, and harder-working;

• and when board members, employees, donors, and others who shape the values and activities of a non-profit come from a wide array of backgrounds, they bring unique perspectives that influence how the non-profit approaches its mission in more inclusive and innovative ways.

Movements like #BlackLivesMatter, #IdleNoMore, #MeToo, along with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission have put a spotlight on some of the longstanding challenges in the culture of the non-profit sector. This has spurred dialogue necessary to create a more vibrant, equitable and inclusive sector – however discussions are just the start and can be challenging without the right vocabulary and the right tools to make change. If you come with an open mind and heart, this workshop will help you build more resilience and power in yourself. You’ll walk away with practical and tactical strategies to influence and create inclusive and equitable relationships and programs with volunteers, board members, donors and colleagues.

• Learn what it means to be a non-profit professional with an anti-oppression lens, acknowledging and working through questions of power and privilege.

• Understand what intersectionality means in the context of the non-profit sector and how you can harness your own intersectionality and that of your volunteers and colleagues to foster diversity and inclusion.

• Acquire practical methods for how to make your volunteer and fundraising programs more inclusive and equitable.

o We will also touch on how to apply this approach at a governance level with your Board of Directors.

• Develop personal strategies to show up more authentically and effectively in your work in the non-profit sector – with donors, volunteers, board members, and colleagues
