    Many organizations struggle to engage volunteers who reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of the communities they serve. In response to this issue, the Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration (MAVA) recently embarked on a research study which resulted in the development of a set of eight strategies for creating a more inclusive volunteer program within nonprofit and government organizations. These strategies serve as a starting point for leaders who are seeking concrete next steps to better engage volunteers from racially diverse and immigrant communities.

    In this interactive session, you’ll learn about the eight strategies, share your own experiences, and create an action plan for launching a more inclusive volunteer program within your own organization.

    Learning Outcomes

    • Identify the barriers that racially and ethnically diverse communities face when trying to volunteer
    • Learn about concrete strategies for creating a more inclusive volunteer program 
    • Create an action plan to determine next steps for inclusive volunteer engagement at your organization
