Advancing our shared commitment to equity and inclusion
AFP International defines as diversity as “the seeking and achieving of a broad representation of experiences, perspectives, opinions and cultures. Inclusiveness is an essential source of vitality and strength for the effective pursuit of an organization’s mission.”
Our definition: “Diversity is all the ways that we are different or add variety. Diversity encompasses people of different race, ethnicity, gender, religion, physical ability, age, geography, sexual orientation and income as regards the composition of staff, board, membership, program content, program presenters, etc. It is equally important to consider the diversity of organizations we represent, from large and well-established institutions to small and emerging non-profits.”
AFP Advancement Northwest’s Co-Vice Presidents of Diversity and Inclusion and our Diversity Committee will lead the organization’s focus on:
These goals guide our mentorship and scholarship programs, our education and professional development opportunities and all the work we do as an association that’s constantly striving to better serve the nonprofit sector.
