TNP Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:
Founded in 1993 by nonprofit leaders, The Nonprofit Partnership (TNP) focuses on building capacity for individuals, organizations, and the sector as a whole. Our values – collaboration, innovation, striving for excellence, responsiveness, and inclusiveness – embody the support we provide to nonprofits of all sizes and missions. In pursuit of these values, we will encourage and provide space for learning and sharing diverse perspectives. As we continue in our mission to support nonprofits, we are committed to intentionally developing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) through our values:
Collaboration: We will be an active partner in collective efforts to address inequities, and we will facilitate within the nonprofit community conversations and policy
Innovation: We will seek out and embrace capacity building avenues and opportunities to address the challenges in the nonprofit sector regarding DEI in work-group culture, board and executive leadership, and organizational development.
Striving for Excellence: We endeavor to live up to the ideals and practices of DEI in our programs, operations, and advocacy.
Responsiveness: We will listen and respond to the emerging needs of the sector by providing timely, engaging, adaptive, and accessible support.
Inclusiveness: We will foster an environment where all people, ideas, resources, skills, and values are valued, convened, and embraced.
