Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Resources

The Center’s 2019 New Jersey Non-Profit Diversity Report shows New Jersey non-profits have serious gaps in diversity within our organizations. A follow-up to this study is forthcoming.

Here are some resources to help take the next steps to work towards becoming more inclusive and equitable. This list is a very preliminary starting point and a continuous work in progress. It is only one step in a much longer, intentional commitment to advancing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging within non-profits and in society at large. We will continue to share our progress, learnings and resources along the way.
