Sep 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

REALITIES: A DEI Education Series by Nonprofit HR

 

When was your organization’s last compensation review, and was it reactionary or a strategically developed to create a more equitable workforce? The 2019 Diversity Practices Survey revealed that only 16% of respondents track pay gaps through the lenses of equity and diversity. Additionally, only 9% said their organizations changed their total rewards practices to realize greater diversity. Today’s digitally-savvy, vocally-empowered employees have many tools at their disposal to publicly share their career experiences and to benchmark how they are compensated and rewarded. Nonprofits are not immune to having their brand criticized for failing to offer fair and equitable compensation.

Sign up now and understand:

  • Where your organization’s total rewards program falls along the equity spectrum
  • How to identify and address compensation and benefits inequities through race and gender
