Equity

Planning for the Lost Horizon

Kathy Ridge, Founder and CEO, LevRidge Resources, LLC

We now know a single vaccine will not instantly obliterate the COVID virus. Instead, we must depend on personal behaviors, along with contact tracing and vaccines, to decrease infection rates. As organizations face an unknown future, how do we plan, prepare, and organize for the ‘lost horizon’ that is 2021 and the post-virus world?

You don’t need a new strategic plan – you need a short-term business plan based on what you do know to get through the next 18 months and develop more resiliency.

Building Assets

Jeanne Tedrow, President & CEO, North Carolina Center for Nonprofits

How do we develop operational practices in the area of program design, management, and evaluation that incorporates equity and cultural sensitivity to those we seek to serve? In building our organizations, are we looking through an asset-based lens to design programs? How we view the community we serve and those who will receive our services influences our program design and subsequent management and evaluation of those services.

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. For organizations already building an understanding of race, gender, and other social constructs and their consequences, this webinar offers a framework to help leaders consider disability in equity planning and identify ways their nonprofit can better include people with disabilities on its staff and board, and among its target population.
