Mississippi Chapter Wins International Charles R. Stephens Diversity Award!
The Mississippi Chapter has just about 75 members, but it did an extraordinary job of developing a diversity conference that is worthy of any chapter size. That extraordinary work led it to being selected as the recipient of the 2015 Charles R. Stephens Award for Excellence in Diversity.
The chapter set out to truly embrace diversity and inclusion, not just for the benefit of its members but the entire sector. To accomplish its goal, the chapter collaborated with a wide number of groups, including the Mississippi Association of Grantmakers, the Mississippi Center for Nonprofits, Volunteer Mississippi, the state’s Arts Commission, and Mississippi Development Authority. It also partnered with the William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation to help develop workshops and bring in other leaders, including the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. MORE
