Many nonprofit organizations talk about the importance of diversity, inclusion, and equity, but many find it difficult to truly integrate these concepts into their work and how they operate. In March 2016, CommunityWise Resource Centre started a process of Anti-Racist Organizational Change (AROC). With AROC, we have been using anti-racism as an approach to strengthen our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity. In this resource, we share the story of how the AROC process unfolded.
Why This Resource? The purpose of this resource booklet is to:
● Tell the story of how our organizational change project started.
● Share some of the resources we’ve found and developed along the way.
● Provide guidance on how other nonprofits can start their own process.
