Injecting practices of DEI and anti-racism is a must for the long-term sustainability of any institution engaging volunteers. Participants will learn how to more purposefully design volunteer engagement mechanisms within the formalized institutes where they work and support.

Participants will understand a foundational level of the following;

  • The historical background of formalized volunteerism through the institutions supported.
  • The practices that can be implemented to increase inclusion of diverse communities you seek for support.
  • Identifying and acknowledging the policies and guidelines within the institutions supported that may adversely affect the diversity of the volunteer populations engaged.
