Keeping DEI Front and Center In Your Pro Bono Programming
Thursday, October 21st at 2pm ET/ 1pm CT/ 11am PT
As part of Taproot's continued investment in DEI, this session will explore how corporate institutions can use the principles of "transformational capacity building" to combat the varied and nuanced ways in which corporate practices and culture may hinder or undermine pro bono efforts with nonprofits serving and/or led by those who hold marginalized and minoritized identities. Led by Kevin Nigarura, a DEI Strategist at Justice Informed, this workshop will allow participants to locate their efforts within these dynamics and identify key opportunities to combat or challenge these damaging approaches and cultural norms.
