Full Data Reveals New Diversity Practices in Social Sector
WASHINGTON, D.C., September 17, 2020 — 63% of respondents to Nonprofit HR’s second annual Nonprofit Diversity Practices Survey report that they have changed their HR and talent management practices to realize greater diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the last year. This year’s 675 respondents include both nonprofit organizations and social enterprises. The survey includes highly-anticipated data points on current responses to COVID-19 and recent calls for racial justice in relation to DEI practices.
“Last year’s Diversity Practices Survey focused heavily on the D in DEI. It used diversity as a basis for determining a baseline for the nonprofit’s progress in this area. This year’s survey revolves around equity, inclusion, and belonging as a reflection of what we see happening in the sector. Now more than ever, organizations are waking up to the importance of, and impact of, DEI on organizational sustainability and culture,” said Lisa Brown Alexander, President & CEO, Nonprofit HR.
An overview of the survey data will be presented via webinar on Monday, September 21 by Lisa Brown Alexander, and Emily Holthaus, Managing Director for Nonprofit HR’s DEI practice. Full results from the survey will be made available to the public in late September 2020.
Press seeking interviews regarding early access to the survey data may email Managing Director for Client Marketing and Strategic Communication, Atokatha Ashmond Brew, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
