Document Download: Racial Equity in the Nonprofit Sector, Executive Summary May 2021
As the state association of charitable nonprofits committed to our mission of empowering nonprofits to strengthen Kentucky, Kentucky Nonprofit Network (KNN) saw an important opportunity to lead efforts and partner with nonprofits to address the racial inequities in and inherent with our sector. The goal of this work is to help organizations build on the core strengths of diversity, equity, and inclusion - making space for greater client trust and engagement; larger employee, board and volunteer pools; better collaboration and decision-making; and stronger results.
KNN officially convened the Nonprofit Racial Equity Task Force in January 2021. Under the expert guidance of our partners at the firm Decide Diversity, the Task Force was charged with a comprehensive survey to collect Kentucky-specific data on the current state of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts in the nonprofit sector.
The launch of the Nonprofit Racial Equity Task Force and this survey are first steps of an ongoing journey that KNN will take with our nonprofit colleagues and the communities and Kentuckians nonprofits serve. KNN embraces both the challenges and the successes uncovered in this report. We invite nonprofits across Kentucky to join us in learning, taking action, and leading change.
