Dr. Antonio Cortes has been selected to lead Nonprofit HR’s Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Justice practice (formerly DEI) as the new Managing Director! His first day is July 1st! Antonio has over a decade of experience as an applied industrial/organizational and business psychologist in the nonprofit sector. In his immediate past role, he functioned as a senior advisor on methodologies to assess, plan and improve approaches to incorporating DEI into organizational operations.
Antonio worked very closely with former Managing Director, DEI, Emily Holthaus, in prior roles before joining the firm and during her tenure at Nonprofit HR. Antonio’s commitment to research and organizational psychology is essential for the growth of practice and for leading his team. Antonio will join our Leadership Team and work alongside other HR and operational executives in the firm.
Renaming of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Practice
There’s more great news. Effective July 1, 2022, Nonprofit HR’s DEI practice will be referred to as Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Justice (EDIJ). This new name accurately reflects where we believe mission-driven organizations are and emphasizes our philosophy, approach and current practices. Nonprofit HR has made considerable investments in our commitment to studying equity. We officially launched our DEI practice in 2020 after several years of determining where and how we would focus these specialized consulting services. And just this past month, we launched our third consecutive Nonprofit DEIJ Practices Survey for 2022. Our continued investment in Knowledge and Research allows us to collect and share data about DEI progress and challenges organizations face. See more about our EDIJ practice!
