Minority Inclusion Project (MIP) works within a peer-learning network of nonprofit, private, and public partners to close the nonprofit racial leadership gap by creating pathways to leadership for people of color. We provide board training & leadership development, diversity programs, transformative consulting services, and community conversations that help create a more informed, equitable, and inclusive social sector where all people – with regards to race, age, culture, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, class, or disability are invited to the leadership table, respected, and treated fairly. Our growing network includes more than 50 organizations and 700 individuals across sectors including faith-based and arts organizations, private and community foundations, nonprofit agencies, community coalitions, private sector businesses, colleges, and more.
The Business Case for Diversity
Event is open to nonprofits located in Waterbury & Greater Litchfield Hills. Hosted by: Connecticut Community Foundation
Don't miss this FREE workshop led by Jamal Jimerson and the Minority Inclusion Project Incorporated focused on how integrating diversity, equity and inclusion into your work can strengthen your organization.
The full day-event will include a panel discussion about nonprofit diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) challenges and opportunities, as well as two spark sessions focused on introducing participants to practical DEI action planning and the Minority Inclusion Project board diversity toolkit.
This FREE session is ideal for senior staff and board members. Teams made up of staff and the board are encouraged to attend.
MIP offers business professionals training, guidance, and opportunities in their pursuit of nonprofit board and staff leadership. Experienced professionals can benefit from our valuable networking events, community conversations, board matching, and mentorship opportunities.
Many nonprofit boards lack diversity and tend to elect individuals who share the same personal networks. This potentially limits opportunities to reach beyond their boundaries. MIP helps nonprofit organizations build their diversity, equity, and inclusion capacity.
