Nonprofit HR’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging
|Welcome to Nonprofit HR’s resources page for diversity practices in talent management. Here, you will find critical resources to assist you in your journey toward building a more inclusive, and equitable workforce. Nonprofit HR deeply values and prioritizes diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). We are attuned to the strength and value that DEI brings to every organization. We are in-tune with the richness of experience, perspective, and collaboration that a diverse and equitable workforce brings. Diverse, equitable, and inclusive practices enrich the lives of organizations and transform the way we serve and engage communities. See our statement of Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Talent Management Practices and Leadership.
Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging have taken on new meaning in today’s environment. Never before have we seen such a level of urgency among social sector leadership to “get it right” and quickly. Does your organization need a DEI thought partner or help with Diversity Strategy Planning, Development, Design and Implementation? Visit our DEI Practice page.

Belonging is linked to increased job performance and can strengthen employee engagement. Understanding the extent to which your diverse staff feels a part of the culture is an important data set to understand.
