The Next Dimension of Equity: Including People with Disabilities as Part of Nonprofit Diversity Work

Disability is a social construct defining what is "normal" and what is not.

The What, Why & How to Diversity

It’s a scary topic that means different things to different people. It involves people looking at themselves and others, and acknowledging our differences. We tend to get hung up on surface-level diversity when the more important conversation is about how organizations can benefit the most from deep-level diversity, or diversity of thought. The way to tap into deep-level diversity is by accelerating the hiring and retention of a diverse workforce. In order to work collaboratively and create a sense of belonging, we will need to build a culture of inclusion.

Frances Kunreuther, co-director of the Building Movement Project, presented findings from a national survey to determine why – despite an increased number of training programs for leaders of color and the number of groups working on issues of race equity – are there not more leaders of color in nonprofits?
