Mississippi Alliance of Nonprofits and Philanthropy

Happy National Nonprofit Day!!!

There are nearly 15,000 nonprofits in Mississippi. That means tens of thousands of outstanding citizens wake up every day looking for a meaningful way to help make their communities and our state a better place. Nonprofit work is not easy work, but it is essential, and every staff member and volunteer deserves profound gratitude for their tireless efforts.

If you work at a nonprofit, THANK YOU!
If you volunteer at a nonprofit, THANK YOU!
If you know someone who works at a nonprofit, thank them.
If you want to make a difference, volunteer.
If you have ever been touched by a nonprofit, reach out to them, share your story, and pay it forward by lending a hand.

Thank you, MS nonprofits, for all that you have done, continue to do, and will do. While it is against our nature to be self-congratulatory, take a moment and reflect on your impact, you are making our Magnolia State great.

When you hear the word, “diversity", perhaps you think about race, sex, or different ideas. With “Diversity in the Workplace”, Pam takes a deeper dive into how we welcome people into a space, invite them to the table, and activate their voices.
Participants will be able to…
• describe the subtle ways that bias occurs.
• identify instances of devaluing others through small, subconscious behaviors, and micro-inequities.
• recognize the different ways of conveying respect.
• lead by example and be part of the solution.
