Employee Handbooks establish the working agreement between nonprofit employees and the organization. They spell out rights, responsibilities, and benefits. This foundational document is an important building block to create equity within an organization. Equity comes into play in a multitude of areas within Employee Handbooks including benefits, conflict resolution, facilities, internal power dynamics, and more. This session will give participants 45 practical suggestions for nonprofit organizations to make their employee policies more equitable – whether they are drafting their first policies or updating their handbook.

Learning Outcomes: Grow in your perspective of equity needs in HR, deepen your commitment to addressing equity in your employee policies, learn 3 lenses to view employee policies, gain 45 specific tips for issues to address in the following areas:
