Common Good VT is pleased to partner with The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits to make the following training available to Vermont nonprofits at a discounted rate (use code CGVT):

Championing diversity, equity or inclusion within an organization requires that individuals reflect deeply on their own lived and personal experiences, belief systems, and culture. By understanding your own core values, leadership strengths, privileges, and skills, you will be a stronger advocate for equity and will develop the confidence to stand up for the organization’s shared values. This workshop will provide you a process and tools for reflection to draft the first iteration of a personal DEI Statement.

As part of this workshop, you will:

  • Build a draft of a personal DEI statement
  • Create a personal inventory of meaningful reflections about your values and goals for DEI
  • Develop confidence to stand up for the organization’s values shared or need to develop DEI practice, policies, and procedures
