Translating Completely KIDS' Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Commitments Into Action

By: 3BL Media

SOURCE: Common Impact


Organizations are increasingly stepping up their commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), but defining what that looks like in practice can be difficult, not to mention creating a plan of action and bringing different stakeholder groups into alignment. That was the challenge nonprofit Completely KIDS brought to the Charles Schwab Pro Bono Challenge in partnership with Common Impact.

The Omaha-based youth development organization works in partnership with local schools and homeless shelters to empower kids and families to break the cycle of poverty and create a more safe, healthy, successful, and connected community. Completely KIDS is committed to DEI across all facets of the organization. The staff recognized that they needed a formal strategy to enhance their culture of inclusion and equity and be more representative of their constituents, who are mostly Latinx and Black. They established a DEI taskforce a few years ago, although lack of direction and actionable objectives have left them unsure of how to progress past education and internal discussions. Completely KIDS came to the Pro Bono Challenge for support in translating its dedication to DEI into meaningful action in alignment with its mission and community.
