We create nonprofits, and nonprofit technology, to right injustices, empower communities, and inspire social change. But do we reflect the people we serve? Sexism and racism continue to be played out in tech communities, while nonprofits—though better than other industries—remain overwhelmingly white, male and college-educated. An honest assessment of where we’re falling short and strategies for moving forward will help us build welcoming, sustainable communities for social change.

This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to:
1) Develop strategies for building more inclusive, accountable, and effective organizations—because nonprofits committed to diversity and empowerment will be better at what they do; 2) Avoid the specialization of technological expertise hardening privilege and perpetuating discrimination in your organization
3) Find ways to be an effective ally to those who are marginalized in your organization, and build a more inclusive culture
4) Find allies outside of your organization if you can’t find any within.
