City Will Discuss NCCD Recommendations
The City of Boulder, Colorado, plans to follow up a recent NCCD report with public discussions regarding the report’s recommendations. The city contracted with NCCD to conduct assessments and produce the report, “Community Perception Assessment of Boulder as a Safe and Inclusive Community,” as part of the city’s effort to strengthen the quality of life for all residents. While most people surveyed by NCCD reported feeling safe and welcome in Boulder, a small but persistent lack of inclusion was reported. NCCD’s recommendations to the city, including the development of a policy review process to assess the impact of new policies on non-majority populations and continuing efforts to promote affordable housing, were based on the collected data and action steps requested by study participants. The Boulder Daily Camera recently ran an article about the report, which can be read here.
Catch up on the Diversity and Inclusion Blog Series
For 110 years, NCCD has promoted just and equitable social systems. To succeed in that mission, NCCD must embody the ideals we promote. Research shows that racially diverse organizations perform better and are more successful than more homogenous companies, but people of color are especially underrepresented in the nonprofit sector. To work toward equity at NCCD, we established the Diversity & Inclusion Committee. The committee comprises a group of staff working to create a supportive, positive, and inclusive work environment for all NCCD staff across the full range of identities. Mid-May, NCCD kicked off a series of blog posts on the themes of diversity and inclusion. The series includes a post by CEO Kathy Park along with reflections from committee members. There’s still time to catch up on this series! Click here for links to all the blog posts published so far.
NCCD promotes just and equitable social systems for individuals, families, and communities through research, public policy, and practice.
