Washington Nonprofits Equity Statement
As part of our commitment to revolutionize nonprofits' place in our state and world, Washington Nonprofits is committed to be a champion and a leader in the quest for diversity, equity, and inclusion in the nonprofit sector. For us, this means using a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens in all the work we do, including looking at ourselves as a nonprofit. We know this means constant learning. If we err, we ask for grace and further discussion, so we can hold ourselves accountable to communities of color, rural communities and others who have been marginalized, and can continue learning and being challenged. We welcome the greater discussion, so we can make the strongest decisions for the issues that affect our membership and become a leader in learning and supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion for our state’s non-profit organizations.
