Training Overview

Is your nonprofit failing at equity and inclusion? Understand intersectionality and be a better ally to fight oppression.

The nonprofit sector is especially prone to the belief that “we cannot be racist” because “we are doing good work,” but in reality, our organizations are defined by inherent power imbalances and influenced by systemic racism. 

In the aftermath of the Derek Chauvin trial and as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to exacerbate inequalities in our communities, it is critical that nonprofits have a deep understanding about bias and privilege.  All aspects of our organizations and leadership must engage in fighting oppression.

Intersectionality is the recognition that different forms of oppression can interact and overlap, combining to create even more harm.  Our community members and stakeholders are impacted by layer-upon-layer of bias stemming from race, gender, nationality, immigration status, sexual orientation, and similar social identities. Conversely, others benefit from privilege based on the same categories.
