Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in Nonprofit Management. Handbook of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (Elgar Publishing). Willis, K., Nicols, W., & McDougle, L. (forthcoming)
[Abstract]: The purpose of this chapter is three-fold. First, we focus on the topic of “whiteness” as a sociological construct that has often been (both implicitly and explicitly) a specific emphasis of DEI in nonprofit management. The construct, which has emerged, grown, and flourished due to centuries of racist, colonial, and imperialist practices (Garner, 2007), has undoubtedly led to the shape, form, and function of the nonprofit sector as we know it; and, we argue, that it is imperative that we acknowledge and grapple with this reality in order to create a nonprofit sector and workforce that is not only aware of its historical origins, but also just, equitable, and fair for all. Second, we provide a broad overview of how DEI has been conceptualized and measured in the nonprofit sector. Finally, we conclude the chapter by outlining what we refer to as a liberatory approach to DEI in nonprofit management.
