Statement of Inclusivity

Our Commitment to Our Community

YNPN Chicago embraces and values the diversity of all our participants, supporters, and members. As an organization, we affirm all people regardless of their age, culture, abilities, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.

As a part of our commitment to developing and sustaining a vibrant nonprofit community, we strive to create an environment of inclusivity through these principles:

  • We respect and affirm the dignity of each individual in our community by valuing differences and embracing diversity as a strength.
  • We commit to providing welcoming and inclusive spaces for current and aspiring young nonprofit professionals to learn, grow, and connect.
  • We proactively develop events that are physically accessible and highlight Chicago‚Äôs neighborhoods.
  • We challenge ourselves to articulate bias and widen access to programs and resources beyond our immediate circles.
