What does it mean to authentically represent your Mission?

Tuesday, December 7 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am • Organized By Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership - University of Missouri-Kansas City
Online Event


Funders believe diversity, equity and inclusion are necessary for social change. To solve social problems we must have collaboration, engagement, community trust, many ideas and many voices. As you carry out your work, how do you hold true to your values? What does an inclusive organization look like? How do you hold diversity, equity and inclusion conversations and not alienate? A panel of BIPOC Nonprofit leaders will discuss what it means to come together with others to address social issues while remaining focused on who you are and doing business to further your mission with your values clearly identified and practiced.
Note: we have added 30 minutes to this session.
