Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Strengthening OMG's Consulting Competence

Racial and ethnic heritage often impede people’s pursuit of quality education, health, home, and community. Persisting negative attitudes, policies, and structures continue to create disparities that keep African Americans and Latinos at a disadvantage.

As social sector advisors, OMG is committed to improving the quality of life and opportunity for all people. But to help people achieve better outcomes, philanthropic and nonprofit advisors like OMG must understand their own attitudes toward diverse populations. They must have appropriate tools to frame, analyze, and uncover the causes underlying persistent inequities of experience and opportunity. Finally, to build a consulting practice committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), it is essential to institutionalize organizational policies that build and support the DEI skills of all staff.

Read our latest issue brief to learn about what OMG is doing to increase its organizational capacities in DEI, and the early lessons we have learned.
