Racial Equity and Inclusion in Nonprofit News

REINN allows leaders to join an ongoing process of building racial equity into their organizational practices. Each element is designed to be accessible, particularly to small and mid-size news operations, in any stage of their DEI work. It’s a living, evolving program based on member needs and participant feedback, so please check this space regularly to find new opportunities.


Equitable, Inclusive Hiring and Talent Development: Take a deep dive with Emily Holthaus of NonprofitHR into identifying and interrupting racial bias and actionable ways to build equity within your hiring, management and retention process . Throughout, we will engage in meaningful dialog and introduce actionable methods that can be applied within your organization. This webinar is for INN members only. Seats for the interactive live workshop are limited, so please register only if you can commit to attending. Again, we want to emphasize that this is a participatory workshop with lots of interaction and breakout groups. Please limit reservations to two attendees per member organization. Resources and condensed video of the presentation will be made available to all INN members after the workshop.
