Nonprofits focused on nearly every cause and mission have been seeking ways to ensure their work forces look more like America’s increasingly diverse population, a goal that many accelerated in the wake of last summer’s racial reckoning.

Many organizations are making strides, hiring people from a wide array of racial and ethnic backgrounds, seeking greater gender and socioeconomic balance among employees, and making their workplaces more open to people with disabilities. However, a few organizations are well ahead of the pack and are creating staffs that reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.

Join the The Chronicle of Philanthropy for a free virtual forum Tuesday, August 3, 2021, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. EST to learn from nonprofit leaders who will share steps they took to diversify their staffs and create cultures that welcome diverse perspectives. They’ll share their experiences and offer advice on how — and why — to build diverse organizations. Register today.
