Diversity Policies

  • 1.  Diversity Policies

    Posted 12-16-2019 14:38
    We are working on our Policies and Procedures manual as well as looking at our mission and vision statements. I am interested in what any of you may have in the way of language dealing with diversity. We had a recent issue that identified we have some work to do in the area of cultural and racial sensitivity and understanding.

    Thanks!

    Annette - Thanks for this terrific post.  My colleague Mohini Venkatesh, National Council Vice President for Business and Strategy, found a helpful free resource from the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) with tools and examples for associations to help enhance their diversity and inclusion. The case they make could be a good way for you and other associations to start the conversation with your staff, board, and stakeholders). See https://www.asaecenter.org/resources/topics/diversity-and-inclusion.

    They also have an Association Inclusion Index, which may also be helpful, but which costs $325 for ASAE non-members.


    Please let us know if you have additional questions on this or if we can help in any way.

    Thanks - Neal
