To continuously improve how nonprofits provide services and support staff, many organizations are adopting racial equity and inclusion (REI) approaches in their work while also focusing on becoming more data driven. Nonprofit practitioners are increasingly interested in bringing these concepts together so they can mutually support each other. By measuring the impacts of systemic racism to inform systems change, internally auditing unconscious bias to improve both staff members’ and clients’ experiences, and developing metrics to measure interventions that combat structural racism nonprofits are exploring how REI and performance measurement collectively inform decisionmaking and strategies that impact an organization’s core mission.

This multistakeholder, practice-oriented conference will bring in experts from the nonprofit sector, government, and philanthropy from Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia to share their insights and strategies for integrating both performance measurement and REI in nonprofits.

We hope you will join us for the following:

  • A panel discussion on how nonprofits, funders, and local government are planning for the future based on their experiences engaging in performance measurement and REI work.

Three skill-building workshops to grow nonprofit ability to (1) measure the impacts of systemic racism to inform systems change, (2) internally audit unconscious bias to improve both staff members’ and clients’ experiences, and (3) develop metrics to measure interventions that combat structural racism.

 

Keynote

  • Michael McAfee, CEO and President, PolicyLink
