Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging for Consultants Program

Applications for the 2024 virtual cohort are open until 5:00 PM Eastern on February 26, 2024

About the Cohort

Traditional consulting practices have been developed through the lens of a relationship between the “experts” and their clients. This has often led to consulting practices that view nonprofits through a deficit lens and top-down practices that emulate power dynamics that devalue the expertise of the people in the organization. Additionally, diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) strategies have grown in visibility and value without the sufficient access to tools, resources and knowledge to allow nonprofits and consultants to thoroughly integrate them. These are the dynamics which we aim to shift.

The virtual Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) for Consultants Program provides a community of practice for consultants to hone their skills and confidence in integrating these practices, particularly with a racial equity lens, into their work with clients.

About the Program

The DEIB for Consultants Program and related curriculum were jointly developed and piloted by TSNE and the Institute for Nonprofit Practice. 

Over the course of ten virtual sessions, participants will gain insights into the evolving field of DEIB work, while engaging with key frameworks, and applying lessons to their own practice, all within a learning community of peers. 

Whether your client work focuses on fundraising, financial management, event planning, marketing, or organizational development, this program will help hone your practice. We aim to select a diverse cohort with a consideration of racial and gender identity, socio-economic class, sexual orientation as well as functional expertise and professional experience. Our goal is to help you build your knowledge, skills, and confidence that will serve you for your entire career, making a positive impact.   

The program is designed for consultants who are: 

 

  • Practicing consultants with four or more years of experience

  • Enthusiastic about deepening the work of nonprofit clients to create more inclusive and equitable organizational cultures

  • Excited to learn with, and from, peers in a cohort-based experience

  • Curious and willing to explore a nonprofit’s practice

  • Willing to engage in difficult conversations with peers and prepared to learn through self-reflection and introspection 

  • Open-minded to learn more about systems of oppression and the impact of structural inequities specific to racism and ethnocentrism 

Group meeting

Topics We Address

Program Cost

At TSNE, we believe that everyone, no matter their access to money and wealth, should have the opportunity to participate in our cohort learning opportunities. Committed to accessibility based on socio-economic class, we offer the DEIB for Consultants Program at a sliding scale. You will pay the tuition cost corresponding to your access to money and wealth. The sliding scale is based on an individual’s annual salary, which serves as a guide to help you make an informed decision around the cost you will pay.

The full cost of running the program is $2500 and with the support of funders, we are able to implement a sliding scale to reduce financial barriers. Costs primarily account for staff labor spent in designing and implementing thoughtful programming. We will not be asking for proof of income, and encourage you to pay the tuition cost based on your salary to help make it possible to run this important program. Payment plans are also available if needed.   Please email ahaynes@tsne.org for more information.
