Our Approach

The work of human resources and finance leaders is intertwined with how we live into values of equity and justice. In some organizations “diversity, equity, and inclusion” work lives in a discrete corner. In reality, questions of organizational design (how we make decisions, how we’re structured, and how we build our internal culture and systems) are all related to equity.

The way we approach things such as budgeting, hiring, and financial transparency, can either replicate or interrupt oppression. We want this to be a space where we are learning to interrupt and dismantle oppressive practices instead of building on inequities of the past. 

We should be gaining, wielding, and sharing technical knowledge in service of greater equity and lifting up the voices and decision making of people that have too often been pushed to the margins in our organizations. If that vision speaks to you, we hope you'll join us!

How Do Our Peer Networks Build Knowledge and Mutual Support?

Through our listservs, hundreds of Bay Area and California nonprofit leaders exhange questions, advice, challenges, and wisdom as a form of mutual support. The listserve is very active, populated with many experienced folks, and full of helpful information. Joining is a great way to break out of the isolation that usually comes with holding finance and human resource roles in nonprofit organizations. 

Our Peer Networks Cafés (online gatherings) are open and honest spaces online gatherings that prioritize connection. This is a space for leaders in our networks to:

  • share fears, challenges, and hopes
  • explore how to center equity in our leadership and decision-making 
  • discuss day-to-day responses and longer-term planning
  • offer peer support (including hope and love)!
