Building Diversity and Multiculturalism: An Executive Action Blueprint for Nonprofits

Recruiting for a Diverse, Multicultural Team
An Introductory Executive Action Blueprint for Nonprofits

No one wants to believe that they or their company has bias, especially nonprofit organizations who purpose is to do social good. But, it happens. Conscious or unconscious bias may reduce your openness to people who are different from you, and in turn, can dramatically affect your hiring process.

 

Diversity in staffing is not only the right thing to do, it’s strategically important to your organization’s mission. The competition for talent is fierce. If you aren’t building a diverse, multicultural staff, you’re losing a competitive advantage. Candidates not only consider diversity when deciding where to work, they want to see the organization’s commitment when deciding whether to stay.

This Executive Action Blueprint introduces you to 7 steps that your nonprofit can implement immediately to create more equitable workplace hiring practices.
