This month, we've been thinking about the challenges the social sector faces as we try to put diversity, equity, and inclusion principles into action...
- Fund the People CEO (and EPIP co-founder) Rusty Stahl, answers questions about the challenges of low nonprofit pay for early-career staff and how foundations can make a difference in advancing social sector talent justice and equity.
- Rob Reich (author, Just Giving) and Phil Buchanan (author, Giving Done Right) discuss whether or not giving by the wealthy is a good thing as part of Philanthropy New York's Reframing Philanthropy Series.
- In Nonprofit Quarterly, consultant Mistinguette Smith talks about the issues inherent in leadership succession within "snowcapped organizations" where the decision-makers are primarily white and emerging leaders of color are often left at the bottom of the institutional hierarchy.
...as well as some of the solutions being put into place to combat those issues.
- A Stanford Social Innovation Review article discusses how organizations can use diversity and inclusion as a way to innovate and drive organizational change and gives recommendations including creating opportunities for boundary-pushing dialog and breaking down systemic silos.
