** This is a pre-registration process. Once Chapter membership has been verified, you will be contacted to confirm your ticket for this event.
While the nonprofit sector is seen as more inclusive than the private sector, research shows that leadership does not tend to represent diverse communities (racialized minorities, Indigenous people, and other under-represented groups). In addition, a survey of nonprofit leaders in Ontario showed that most organizations were not actively seeking diverse pools of talent.
So how do we in our organizations identify bias and work against the systems that lead to this lack of diversity? In this session, we will have an open and honest conversation about identifying and dismantling these systems and barriers. In addition, we will talk about what it means to be anti-racist and how we can play an active role creating an environment of inclusion within our workplaces and communities.
