Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Workshop #2
October 1, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm
On October 1st we will continue the discussion and work we began in June as we further explore the issues of diversity, equity and inclusion and how we can incorporate insights gained into SVP’s work.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is one of our most important initiatives as an SVP chapter. Closing the opportunity gap in Connecticut will require us to increase the diversity of our partnership and incorporate DEI principles in our work in education and workforce development. Nonprofit and community leaders have indicated that the work we have begun focused on DEI is an important factor in their decision to engage with SVP.
Building upon the success of our first workshop in June, this next session will focus on how to incorporate DEI principles and practices into SVP’s core processes. These include our grantmaking and nonprofit capacity building efforts, as well as Partner recruitment and engagement.
Prior participation in the June workshop is not required and broad Partner input on this topic is needed.
