Why is DEI important for a thriving business and satisfied employees? And, how can small organizations in particular respond — while honoring their existing capacity? Lindsey introduces our solution: Sojourn!

DEI for Small Business & Nonprofit Employee Retention

Small businesses often face challenges in trying to “piece together” a DEI initiative which often places additional work on employees that are already wearing several hats. In order to avoid burnout, the best practice is to outsource this work to a company, such as LTHJ Global, that specializes in working with organizations to gather data, conducting strategic planning and performing the next steps to move forward doing “the work” of DEI.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for Nonprofits

They wear gentle, open smiles, and appear to be a millennial Asian man and woman wearing 'Volunteer' shirts, a millennial White woman and an older gentleman of indeterminate race with pale skin sitting in a wheelchair. There is gentle sunlight that casts shadows across the scene.

Nonprofit organizations have a unique history filled with a “calling” to provide aid to those suffering. While this is commendable work, there is usually strife within these agencies due to top-heavy leadership, inconsistent pay scales and a lack of upward mobility. While the premise for providing help has not changed, today’s nonprofits are seeking to become change agents and learn to navigate the barriers that create challenges for them internally aligning with their core values.

A White man in a pink shirt buries his face in his hands, wearing a pink sweater and pushing his glasses up onto his forehead.

“Dear Lisa: How do I stop trying to do everything myself and ask for HELP at work? I’m overwhelmed and know I could probably find things to delegate or outsource, but I don’t know where to begin.”
