2020 NYC Nonprofit Board DEIA Training Series

A Strategic Approach to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility for NYC Nonprofit Boards

NYC Service is excited to announce our newest training series, A Strategic Approach to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion , and Accessibility for Nonprofit Boards.
This free 3-part virtual training series for nonprofit executives and board members is based on
NYC Service 2018 Report recommendations and aims to move away from a surface-level understanding of DEIA to focus on building a deepened and common framework that works to harness board support and action.
More specifically:

  • Articulate a common language around DEIA and its benefits

  • Build the internal support and the infrastructure to mobilize change

  • Create strategic (and tangible) DEIA goals and practices for implementation

  • Dedicate the board and organization to sustained awareness and accountability

This training is for New York City Nonprofit board members and Executive Directors/CEOs from across the 5 boroughs and representing different sub-sectors. Trainings are hosted by NYC Service and facilitated by a DEIA nonprofit board development specialist.

Trainings will be held virtually this summer on the following dates from 10:00am – 12:30pm.

Please note this training series is intended for  existing 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in NYC. - and nonprofit executives with some very basic knowledge of DEIA.
Preference will be given to organizations that commit the attendance of both the ED/CEO and a board member at every training due to the nature of some activities taking place during the trainings. Executive Directors/CEOs and board members must each submit separate applications. For organizations that are run by the board and do not have an executive position, the Board President may apply in addition to another board member. 

If you are interested in this training, please complete the application by May 26, 2020. If you have any questions about this training series, please email NYC Service’s Capacity Building Coordinator, Jamaica Carter (
