On the Blog: Invest in Equity in the Nonprofit Workforce!
Rusty Stahl, President and CEO, Fund the People

If your nonprofit doesn’t invest in its staff in general, it will likely be unsuccessful at establishing a more diverse staff. If your organization is a toxic place to work, then the very people you want to engage will rightfully stay away. If you pay wages that are so far below market-rate that only independently wealthy people can afford to work there, it will likely be difficult to enhance the socio-economic diversity of the staff. By exploiting the labor of current employees, by default we exclude prospective staff. 

Luckily, there is a different way. In place of exploitation and exclusion, we can intentionally invest in your staff to fuel a more equitable and inclusive workplace.

New Survey: Investing in Equity in the Nonprofit Workforce
We've partnered with the Center for Urban and Racial Equity to launch our Survey on Investing in Equity in the Nonprofit Workforce. This is our first step in producing new resources that will help funders and nonprofits invest in people of color and other constituencies in the nonprofit workforce. Share your perspective!
