Thrive Alliance and the Silicon Valley Council of Nonprofits (SVCN) invite guests to join them for Welcoming Week, an annual campaign that celebrates the work in communities to become welcoming places for all, including immigrants.
In the upcoming session, Nonprofit REDI Hub: Cultivating Connections - Exploring Cultural Humility in the Nonprofit Community, nonprofit leaders will discuss working directly with immigrants, strategies for embracing cultural humility, lessons learned through their experiences, and tips and resources to support immigrant communities better.
The session's goals are to uncover best practices that empower nonprofits working with immigrant communities to integrate cultural humility into their organizations and gain insights into concrete steps to center the immigrant community within your organization's structures. Attendees are encouraged to discuss candidly overcoming obstacles while operating in diverse environments and systems.
The event moderator is Rafael Avendaño, Executive Director of Redwood City Together. The panelists are: Jeremy Barousse, Director of Policy and Organizing from Amigos de Guadalupe; Mirna Cervantes, Executive Director of the Multicultural Institute; Judith Guerrero, Executive Director of Coastside Hope; Bea Pangilinan, Deputy Director of Asian Law Alliance.
The Nonprofit Racial Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Hub (REDI Hub) is a joint effort between SVCN and Thrive Alliance to integrate Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion into the nonprofit community in Santa Clara County and San Mateo County.
