Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity
As part of our ongoing commitment to providing technical assistance opportunities for our grantees, this year we are offering some exciting new options in alignment with our recent strategic plan and vision for an equitable New Jersey through creative, engaged, sustainable communities.
The Dodge Anti-Racism Series: Learning to Applied Practice: Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression
Learning to Applied Practice: Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression is a five-month collective journey designed to provide tools and prioritized action plans to ground your organization’s understanding in anti-racism and anti-oppression concepts, build empathy and relational bridges, and catalyze your organization’s commitment to change into transformative action. The areas of learning include anti-racism, anti-oppression, structural racism, white supremacy, white fragility, power and privilege, intersectionality, ableism, equity, diversity, inclusion, and access.
Learning to Applied Practice: Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression is designed and facilitated by Yancey Consulting, and supported by the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation as an extension of its commitment to becoming an anti-racist organization in New Jersey.
Priority will be given to Dodge grantees but there are a limited number of spots open for non-grantees and community partners.
The Nonprofit Professionals of Color Collective
Dodge and the Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership are collaborating on The Nonprofit Professionals of Color Collective, a monthly leadership workshop series, to provide a space where nonprofit professionals of color engage in a supportive community for growth, professional development, and meaningful peer relationships.
The Nonprofit Professionals of Color Collective is a nine-month series that began in January facilitated by Victoria Fernandez, acting program director of Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership, and Tyneisha Gibbs, founder and principal of 144th & Vine. The series is designed so people can attend one or all sessions and still benefit. Nonprofit professionals of color are invited to join the Collective for the whole series, for topics of particular interest, or join the group only for the networking events.
