The State of DEIJ in Nonprofits: Survey Results from Nonprofit HR

Thursday, September 15, 2022 (2:00 PM - 3:30 PM) (EDT)


For the third time, Nonprofit HR surveyed social impact organizations in North America about their diversity (D) practices and priorities, and this year’s survey results also offer insight on their equity, inclusion, and justice practices (DEIJ) as well.

Tune in to this special webinar for the TNPA community to find out how mission-driven employers fare in terms of their DEIJ practices and gain valuable benchmarking data such as: 

  • how many social impact organizations have formal DEIJ statements, strategies, and dedicated budgets 
  • what organizations report as their greatest diversity challenges 
  • tips for moving from diversity statements to position statements 
  • how the pandemic and social justice events have impacted decision making about DEIJ practices 
  • and much more! 

We will have plenty of time for your questions and discussions of what matters most to you.

Register now and you will gain insights to help your leadership prioritize DEIJ efforts and understand how to incorporate and implement these practices into your organization's strategy.

Funding for this program was generously provided by AARP Foundation as part of their 2021-22 strategic commitment to diversity.
