DEI and Why it’s so Important to Your Nonprofit

DEI, or Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is a subject that often comes up but is not fully addressed. We can all agree that there is no room for racism or exclusion in our world today, but could we be doing more? What is DEI? Why is it important? How does it affect my nonprofit? Those are some of the questions we are going to answer on this episode with our guest Riley Randolph.

Riley holds an undergraduate degree in Communications with a minor in Interdisciplinary studies, of which she had a focus in Critical Race Theory. Riley is the Grants Manager at Soukup Strategic Solutions. Riley not only writes grants but also undertakes extensive grant research as well. Riley has written millions of dollars in grants and the largest award to date was earlier this year when her Community Development Block Grant was approved for just shy of $1million.
