Resources for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
NNIP’s mission is to ensure all communities have access to data and the skills to use data to advance equity and well-being across neighborhoods. It is critical that our organizations reflect the diversity in our communities and are inclusive of all people. Over the past several years, NNIP HQ has been intentionally thinking about how to more deeply embed diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within the activities of the NNIP network and its partners.
We have categorized our efforts into two areas:
- Promoting DEI practices within Partner organizations, including hiring, retention, and assembling advisory or governing boards
- Highlighting how Partners’ products and services can further DEI in their communities
In 2019, we compiled a set of resources to help Partners center DEI in their internal processes and external products. While tailored for NNIP members, we believe the resources would also be relevant for other data and research organizations.
Moving forward, the Network will continue to prioritize opportunities to learn about and use equity-centered organizational development and practices that will reframe how data can be used to take on structural and systemic challenges.
