Your organization’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion must reach beyond the DEI committee or the equity officer. A DEI policy and a focus on racial equity have implications that stretch across an organization from hiring practices, event planning, and equipment acquisition to the development of technology roadmaps and beyond.
Join this online course to discuss how nonprofits have infused race-centered diversity, equity, and inclusion practices into all aspects of organizational operation, including an examination of how technology decisions and practices are connected with DEI work. Participants will build skills needed to create opportunities for all staff (most importantly staff of color, LGBQTIA+, and staff with disabilities) to authentically and meaningfully engage with internal DEI conversations, decisions, and the development of strategic plans.
This course will examine how organizational DEI practices relate to technology in the nonprofit context, as well as your organization’s technology roadmap. The course will address and inform the decision-making practices that demonstrate your commitment or lack of commitment to racial equity.
You should come into this course with an interest in and a beginning foundation in race-centered DEI work.
The week-long course includes pre-work reading and quiz, a live 90-minute session, and homework.
