Unsure if your organization has signed on to the Nonprofit Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Pledge? Check the listing here!

NPP Pledge Partners have made a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in their workplaces. As we know, commitments start at the top which makes it vital that nonprofit Boards and leadership have an understanding of, and a commitment to, their role in leading the organization in advancing DEI.

The Pledge Partner Exclusive: Pre-KeyCon Breakfast will be a time of networking and learning. It is part of The Nonprofit Partnership's ongoing commitment to our members, as we made through the pledge, to provide training and education that will further the nonprofits' efforts. 

Would you like some food for thought with your morning coffee?

Christal Cherry, The Board Pro, will join us for the Pledge Partner Exclusive: Pre-KeyCon Breakfast. Christal will speak on, "Silence is Not Golden: Training Your Board About Racial Inequities."

During this time of intense focus on inclusion, bias, and privilege, one thing remains clear; nonprofit boards as stewards of the public good, must reprove intolerance and inequity and lift their collective voices to make change.

Breakfast attendees will learn how boards can work with the CEO and staff to ground organizational values and practices so that they are inclusive. They will redefine their roles by accepting accountability for setting the tone with deliberate and strategic action to drive progress towards race equity cultures at their organizations. Join us!
