Event Details

Let us hear from you! 

As a follow up to KNN's Nonprofit Racial Equity Task  Force's release of the results of the Racial Equity in Kentucky's Nonprofit Sector Report, we are hosting a series of listening sessions to continue exploring issues and opportunities related to racial equity.

The goal of this work is to effectively engage with communities we serve to create a more sustainable and equitable future. In this listening session, we will discuss racial equity and diversity in staffing. We are eager to hear from YOU on the challenges, opportunities, experiences, and recommendations that will help our nonprofit sector improve diversity on our teams and in nonprofits leadership.  We invite ALL to join us for these these listening sessions and especially hope to hear from:

  • nonprofit leaders and staff of color
  • smaller organizations
  • organizations just beginning to develop diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) strategies
  • organizations seeking to understand the business case for DEI
  • organizations already championing this work who are willing to share their strategies, successes and missteps with other nonprofits

As valued and recognized leaders in communities across Kentucky, nonprofits can play an essential role in engaging Kentuckians in the movement for social and racial equity. KNN invites nonprofits to join them and the Task Force in learning, taking action, and leading change. 

ALL nonprofit staff, board members, and volunteers are invited to join us and we hope you will spread the word to others!
