Welcome to the second edition of Inclusion Insights, a regular publication of LeadingAge North Carolina highlighting trends, practices, and news related to inclusion and diversity issues in aging services. We welcome your feedback, questions, and story ideas!

If Your Board Looked Like Your Community

Several California-based arts organizations share lessons learned from efforts to increase board diversity that could apply to all nonprofits. Suggesting that nonprofits reshape their perspective on board diversity from a problem to a practice, this article answers why it’s worth diversifying your board, whether representation matters, and what opportunities might result from a diverse board.  

Why So Few "Diversity Candidates are Hired”

This brief but informative two-minute video from Harvard Business Review walks through a study that examined hiring decisions in controlled and real world scenarios. Even if you have been diversifying candidate pools at your community, you may be surprised how unconscious biases may still be at play.

Why Diversity Programs Fail

This Harvard Business Review article uses data, interviews, and examples to suggest that some of the most effective solutions to diversity problems are not designed with diversity in mind. Intrigued? Take a look at some of the practices that worked, some that did not and why, and learn what roles rebellion, autonomy, and engagement play in true diversity success.

Engaging Nonprofit Employees

Presenting results of a survey of 400,000 employees and 5,500 organizations, this article offers practical strategies specifically aimed at nonprofits to engage and retain employees. The article claims that nonprofit employees choose to work in the nonprofit sector specifically for the chance to "improve lives and give voice to those not being heard” and they also want "fairness, positivity and inclusion in their daily work environment.”

 Three Ways We Can Increase Diversity in Corporate America

This article features the financial sector and posits that diverse teams help companies learn how to do business with diverse customer bases. The author also asks us to consider what role our organizations could play in creating a more diverse employee baseby providing opportunities for education, sharing success stories, and making deliberate investment decisions.
