Free Training Opportunity: Inclusion in Non-Profits

Creating a more culturally diverse and inclusive workplace is a key challenge facing many non-profit leaders. Is it a priority for you? The Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) is hosting the last “Leading The Conversation: Inclusion in Non-Profits” training this coming September 2016.

In 2014, Ontario Non-profit Network (ONN)  identified diversity as one of the top five challenges for non-profit leaders (Shaping the Future: Leadership in Ontario’s Non-profit Labour Force, Ontario Non-profit Network, The Mowat Centre, University of Toronto, September 2014). From sources of recruitment to hiring practices, onboarding and professional development – ONN concluded that when it comes to cultural diversity and inclusion, non-profit leaders need support in taking action to build inclusive workplaces. ONN partnered with TRIEC to develop a pilot training that later became a program offered to non-profit leaders in Ontario.

Join this free training program to access practical training, solutions-based learning, tools and resources to increase diversity and inclusion at your organization. The curriculum includes two in-person workshops and two live webinars, and eLearning over a four- month period with a focus on cultural diversity in the workplace. Through the live sessions, you will have the opportunity to collaborate and connect with other non-profits working on the same challenges.

The last training cohort will be held in September in London, ON, at Goodwill Industries, Ontario Great Lakes.
