Nonprofit associations increasingly recognize the importance of promoting diversity, equity, inclusion and justice in their operations and programs. However, because associations can have intricate organizational structures with complex and sometimes globally dispersed stakeholder communities, they tend to face unique challenges when setting and implementing critical DEI strategies. We designed this webinar to showcase successful examples of nonprofit associations with complex structures that have implemented effective strategies for achieving DEI goals and the lessons they have learned.

During this webinar, participants will:

  • Learn from nonprofit associations that have successfully advanced their DEI strategies and goals.
  • Hear from association leaders who have driven the implementation of these strategies, including their challenges and successes in navigating complex structures.
  • Discover best practices for developing and building inclusive cultures across the organization, ensuring equitable representation of all stakeholder communities throughout the journey.
  • Explore different approaches and tools associations use to assess their DEI progress and track their impact over time. 

Register now for this webinar and gain insights into how associations are integrating DEI into their organization’s overall strategic plan, mission and vision, and what you can do to ensure that your association’s DEI efforts are aligned throughout your ecosystem.
