Training Overview

Understand stereotypes and move toward inclusivity at your nonprofit. Fight racist myths and eliminate unconscious bias.

Even unconsciously, stereotypes and bias permeate all aspects of nonprofit operations and programs. An important conversation is underway in the sector – and between your employees, volunteers, and clients – about the effects of unconscious prejudices.

Hidden biases have a significant negative impact on your organization, and they interfere with the most well-intentioned diversity efforts.  You need to understand the historical and subconscious perpetuation of the myth of Black inferiority and work collaboratively to reverse its effects.
