We’ll cover what strategic planning can do for your organization, how it differs from a business plan, the elements of a good plan, as well as roles and responsibilities among staff, board and stakeholders.

From Conversation to Implementation: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

What communities are currently not represented and authentically engaged in our work and why? Do we want to foster a workplace culture built on respect for all people? What barriers exist that may be keeping us from achieving a workforce (or board of directors, or participants) that will bring true diversity of life experiences and perspectives?

If your staff is in conversation about questions like these, this Brown Bag lunch session is a primer for how to plan to plan for implementation of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in the work place.  Join fellow colleagues to learn more about how EDI can be implemented at the conception of an organizational planning process.
