This special program will take an honest look at various dynamics that impact diversity and inclusion and how these impact personal, interpersonal, and institutional growth within nonprofit organizations. Together we will explore and define ways to foster an understanding and appreciation of our differences in order to create a welcoming and diverse environment that best reflects our core values.  Through facilitated discussion, participants will foster an appreciation of our differences in efforts to create a welcoming and diverse environment within our community and institutions.
