The POC Affinity Group was created to provide the opportunity to people of color in the nonprofit sector to connect, support, share expertise, mentor, and further participant’s professional development.
Participants will gather to achieve a better understanding of racial, economic, employment, housing, graduation, suspension, and hiring disparities that affect the nonprofit sector and their missions in the NW Region. Participants will learn about strategies to use to understand equity and inclusion and to bridge cultural differences in an effort to create change within their organizations and communities.
If you identify as a POC currently working at a nonprofit in the Northwest Minnesota region, you are invited to join this free group.
If you have any questions about the POC Affinity Group, please contact Ashley Charwood, Northwest Minnesota regional coordinator, at 218-407-5202 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information will be announced in MCN’s monthly e-newsletter, Northwest MN Regional Update.
