Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Principles
The nonprofit sector serves an essential role in creating and sustaining a civil society, by filling needs not met by the private or public sectors. Nonprofits provide direct services, advocate, and lobby on behalf of underserved communities, groups, and stakeholers. As such, nonprofit organizations are in a unique position to provide informed leadership and modeling of equity, diversity, and inclusion practices.
Implementing equity and diversity in nonprofit organization workplaces is accomplished through the identification and elimination of any form of discrimination. The second step is the creation of workplace practices that remove any employment biases or discrimination for any person.
