Jeanne Canina Tedrow, President & CEO, North Carolina Center for Nonprofits
We believe promoting inclusion is essential to your organization, customers and communities.
We aim to bridge the gap between traditional compliance-based diversity initiatives and a true performance-enhancing environment.
The Equity Paradigm is a diversity, equity & inclusion consulting firm that helps individuals and organizational leaders a) foster key mindsets, practices and approaches that address structural and interpersonal barriers and advance equity, b) interrogate socio-historical factors that have led to disparate outcomes between individuals, across systems and within institutions, and c) position you to champion and actively work towards diversity, equity and inclusion in your work.
The North Carolina Center for Nonprofits hosted the third webinar of our "Walking the Talk: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in North Carolina Nonprofits" series. Building Movement Project (BMP) co-director Frances Kunreuther discussed Race to Lead: Confronting the Nonprofit Racial Leadership Gap, the first report in BMP’s Race to Lead series that explores why there are so few leaders of color in the nonprofit sector.
Are we practicing what we preach? Or is our implicit bias negatively affecting our decisions in spite of our good intentions? Ivan Canada and Michael Robinson of the National Conference for Community and Justice of the Piedmont Triad presented the second webinar in the Center's "Walking the Talk" series, Impact > Intention: Understanding Implicit Bias. The discussion included:
Gut Checking: How to re-wire the unconscious mind
Imagine for a moment that you are driving in an unfamiliar city and you happen upon a mural that you simply must stop to see more closely. You pull over, park your car on the side of the road, get out of the car, and pull out your phone to snap a picture. In your periphery, you see a group of young men walking towards you. What do you do? Do you wave at the young men because they remind you of your children’s friends or sensing possible danger, do you try to get back in your car unnoticed and drive away?
One of the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits’ core values is to respect and include the wide variety of North Carolina’s people, cultures, regions, religions, and political views.
