Advancing Equity in Nonprofit Space with Ledah Wilcox

Interested in learning how to Advance Equity in Nonprofit Space? We have the event for you!

Join the YNPN crew and guest facilitator Ledah Wilcox (they/them/theirs) for an evening deepening our understanding of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) work in nonprofit organizations, with an emphasis on racial and gender equity work!

We will spend some time establishing shared purpose and language, after which participants will be guided through a discussion process with small groups of like-minded peers. This event is a great opportunity for YNPN members to share their knowledge, learn from their colleagues, and further solidify their skills around and commitment to fostering equity in their organizations.

Ledah comes to facilitation and consulting after over a decade of working with youth, from circus camp to Portland Public Schools and many places in between. As a facilitator they have worked with groups such as Start Making a Reader Today (SMART), Open Meadow Alternative Schools, the Center for Equity and Inclusion, and the Portland State University School of Social Work. They hold a Masters in the Arts of Teaching from Lewis & Clark College, and a BA from Wesleyan University. Ledah identifies as a white, transgender, Jewish, Montanan, book nerd; they deeply believe that all forms of oppression must be eradicated for any of us to be free.
