Diversity Is Our Strength: Improving Working Conditions in Canadian Nonprofits

This report demonstrates what the sector has long known but not had the data to prove: our workforce is incredibly diverse but undervalued. 77% of nonprofit workers are women, 47% immigrants and 35% Indigenous and racialized people.

To improve conditions for the nonprofit sector’s diverse workforce, we need immediate action from funders, governments, and nonprofit leaders. Read the full report to learn more.
