Diversity and Inclusion in Québec's Nonprofit Sector

Author/contributor
Title
Diversity and Inclusion in Québec's Nonprofit Sector
Abstract
Insufficient diversity and inclusion within the nonprofit sector is a longstanding issue facing organizations across Québec, and Canada more generally. At present, the nonprofit volunteer and workforce do not adequately reflect the diversity of the province’s population. Minority communities do not see themselves represented and a lack of participation excludes their lived experiences from the decision making process. There are several actions that organizations can take in pursuit of creating more heterogeneous teams that invite meaningful participation; each of which requires commitment at all levels of governance in a nonprofit.
