[Intermediate] Why Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Matter for Nonprofits

For some organizations, simply doing what is right may be enough to spur action. Others may be moved by data showing that diversity can boost the quality of decision-making and that a diverse workplace can encourage people to be “more creative, more diligent, and harder-working.” Studies have also shown that a more diverse staff can foster enhanced innovation. And when board members, employees, donors, and others who shape the values and activities of a nonprofit come from a wide array of backgrounds, they bring unique perspectives that influence how the nonprofit approaches its mission in more inclusive and innovative ways.


Tools
Cookie Control

The company I was using as a cookie management system is pivoting their business model and closing the cookie consent portion. Any recommendations of cookie consent management? I’m thinking of CIVIC (https://www.civicuk.com/cookie-control/) as their UI is clean but looking to make an informed decision and check others.
