Systemic gender bias and sexism are pervasive in the nonprofit sector. It is a myth the “do-gooder” nature of nonprofits means an organization is more self-aware or better equipped to challenge societal power imbalances. Our goals are to:
- Build awareness of implicit and explicit gender biases
- Discuss racial, gender, and class power structures
- Share examples of everyday interactions of gender bias in fundraising/workplace situations that impact employees’ career prospects/mobility and organizations’ ability to maintain diverse representation and a positive work culture
- Move employees/organizations toward lasting change through individual, interpersonal, organizational, and structural solutions including how AI platforms like Harkness.ai can reduce implicit bias in business meetings and improve workplace communication
