SAVE THE DATE - 2019 Oregon Heritage Summit, April 25-26, Medford

Join us in Medford for the 2019 Oregon Heritage Summit. The focus is helping heritage organizations create a culture of board engagement. Topics discussed including board recruitment, onboarding, retention, and offboarding. The goal of this summit is for folks to get some practical tools to take back to the rest of their board to help them address critical issues such as succession planning, rapid board turnover, burnout, and lack of engagement.

The Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards Banquet will be held the evening of April 25.

NAO session Nov. 8 on Leading & Operationalizing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Nonprofits

Leading & Operationalizing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Nonprofits
Thursday, Nov. 8, in Portland
Presenter: Rekah Strong, Executive Director, Education Opportunities for Children and Families

Moving to a more diverse, equitable and inclusive organization is definitely not a quick, overnight task - it is a slow process that takes time and concentrated efforts with long term and holistic impact that seeks to remedy longstanding systemic barriers. But, for those of us who serve in a role related to operationalizing these concepts and are ready to move these DEI initiatives forward, we sometimes get tripped up on where and how to make it happen. During this advanced session, Rekah will discuss key questions you need to be asking yourself: Where do we start? What does implementation look like across all areas of an organization? How can we best avoid common pitfalls? This promises to be an engaging session with much to share on how to make it happen!

Audience: Nonprofit Executives, Board Members, HR and Operations Directors and those on their way to joining them in operationalizing concepts of diversity, equity and inclusion in their organizations.
