Welcome to the launch of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Initiative*!

Our DEI Initiative springs from NNCG's mission and priorities articulated in our 2017-2020
Strategic Framework . It focuses on equipping consultants with the tools, resources, and skills to integrate a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens into their work and the work of their clients.

We plan to roll out a series of programs and activities to:
  • Improve the quality and effectiveness of consultants to enhance the impact of philanthropy in creating a more just, equitable, and inclusive world
  • Recruit, develop, and advance more qualified consultants with deep DEI commitment, methods, and tools to integrate into their consulting practices
  • Support our members' clients in comprehensively integrating a DEI lens in their work.
As an integral part of the NNCG Strategic Framework , our DEI Initiative reaffirms our dedication to leveraging and expanding our membership's collective expertise to address critical issues affecting the field.


*How NNCG Defines Diversity

We support the deep thinking that went into D5's efforts to advance philanthropy's diversity, equity, and inclusion and we have chosen to adopt their broad definition of diversity to be as inclusive and comprehensive as possible in our own DEI efforts.
Our categories of diversity will include:
  • Racial and ethnic groups: Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, Hispanics/Latinos/Latinas, African Americans and blacks, and American Indians and Alaska Natives.
  • LGBT populations
  • People with disabilities
  • Women
