Addressing Systemic Inequity in the Nonprofit Sector


NPO Conversation on Wednesday, October 11 at GMA

Our discussion topic explores how the nonprofit sector is confronting systemic inequity. Why? Several times a year we invite leaders of nonprofit organizations to join us for a lunch discussion about current issues, ideas, and concerns in the nonprofit and philanthropic community. The meetings are a time for us to move beyond the usual conversation between foundations and nonprofit organizations.

Each session focuses on a particular topic, and reservations are required. Guests will learn a little more about GMA and a lot about their peers’ perspectives on important issues.

Going Deep:  Addressing Systemic Inequities in the Nonprofit Sector

What does it take for a nonprofit organization to really “go deep” and face its own biases and promote race, class, and gender equity internally?

We are inviting nonprofit organizations and their allies to share what they have learned on this important journey.

As leaders stretch beyond one-off diversity training workshops, they are discovering valuable insights about organizational leadership, capacity, and readiness for change.  They are also eager to learn how to promote an organizational culture that is more inclusive, humane, and self-aware about race, class, gender, and sexuality.

Come share your experiences, your ideas, and your questions.

GMA’s Prentice Zinn will moderate the discussion which is open to the Executive Director or person responsible for a Boston-area nonprofit’s organizational culture.

We will meet at GMA’s new office on the 5th floor at 2 Liberty Square (enter on Kilby at Milk Street) on Wednesday, October 11 from 12n to 1:30pm.  GMA will provide lunch.

Registration is required as space is limited. Please contact Sarah Fox by email  by October 5. We look forward to our conversation and thank you in advance for your time.
