In this complex time where inclusion, diversity, and equity are front page news daily, it can feel hard to know where to begin. While Canada and the US share much in common, there are also enough significant differences, that American materials on this topic are not always relevant to Canada. It can feel particularly difficult to find Canadian resources.

Fortunately, there is a treasure trove of great Canadian resources on a wide range of topics including

  • "Philanthropic Sector & Truth and Reconciliation,"
  • "Ending Stigma around Invisible Disabilities," and
  • "Developing A Culture Of Diverse & Inclusive Supporter Communications" "Reviewing Recruitment, Retention & Advancement Opportunities for Racialized Women in the Philanthropic Sector"

to name just of a few of the research papers created specifically by Canadian charity professionals for use in the sector.

Available on the site are resources in the areas of 

  • Accessibility
  • Benchmarking Tools For D & I
