Diversity and inclusion: How to do it right

Marc Coleman, Kelly Kroehle and Derek Dorsey. January 25, 2016 Category: Method
Diversity and inclusion are ideas worth adopting at your organization for many reasons, only one of which is the financial benefits: A more diverse workforce is more likely to outperform the national average by 35 percent. 

On Wednesday, Feb. 10, Generocity will host its third Impact Solutions meetupour monthly event series looking at tangible solutions that you can take home and apply to your organizations. (Find the previous meetups’ conversations on Twitter.) 

This month we’re looking at diversity and inclusion: What does it take to create safe, strong, welcoming organizations and neighborhoods for the variety of identities that make up Philadelphia?


This topic requires thoughtful consideration and is essential to a healthy, relevant community, and we believe that leaders need to speak transparently and share best practices. Generocity has lined up three speakers to discuss the ways they have approached these issues from different angles:

  • Derek Dorsey will talk about how he organized the Picnic for Solidarity in response to last fall’s hate attack on the Al-Aqsa Islamic Society. The picnic ballooned into a thousand-attendee event in just five days and brought together the River Wards community.
  • Marc Coleman, president of digital agency The Tactile Group, will share how his business makes sure it is hiring from a diverse pool of qualified candidates.
  • Kelly Kroehle will discuss tools for proactively structuring your organization to be inclusive of all gender identities, based on her work as director of The Bryson Institute of the Attic Youth Center.

While these are specific pieces of the diversity and inclusivity puzzle, these short talks will provide solid concepts and takeaways that can be applied to any organization.
