Nonprofits make diversity effort a permanent program

The Denver Foundation found in its two-year pilot program that nonprofits that exhibit inclusiveness can help boost staff morale, improve services and raise more money, according to a November 21 article in the Denver Business Journal.

Based on the success of the pilot, The Denver Foundation will make the Inclusiveness Project a permanent program.

“We’re trying to make the case that for all nonprofits, when you practice inclusiveness intensively and holistically, not just as an add-on or as diversity training you do once a year, it actually makes you more effective,” said Rebecca Arno, vice president of The Denver Foundation.

    What a novel concept. 😉 I’m glad they’ve found this to be true and are making diversity more than the one-day-a-year training seen in some organizations.
