Partner Webinar

Cost: $45 for Members; $65 for nonmembers (NDANO discount code login to Member's Only Portal for code)


Many people are familiar with the metaphor comparing culture to an iceberg. The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits knows that it's important to look below the surface beyond what can be visually seen to learn more about another person’s beliefs, values, norms and behaviors. To be truly effective in work, it's important to examine our biases and assumptions about our colleagues, constituents and clients. It is also important to examine the cultural norms of the workspaces to uncover barriers to equity and belonging.

In this workshop, the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits will unpack the layers of the cultural iceberg to gain a deeper understanding of how culture shows up in our business and organization, identify how implicit bias affects how to understand and support different cultural identities and examine how our cultural norms are often based in whiteness and patriarchy.
