May 11, 2022

INGO Commitments toward Greater Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Concern Worldwide US is committed to being a diverse, inclusive and people-focused organization. As a signatory to the DEI Compact, we stand in solidarity with this important step by the InterAction community to urgently work to improve INGO programming, operations, learning, and advocacy around DEI.

The Message 

Our community understands that collaboration and bold action are vital to driving change. We also know that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential for effective and sustainable assistance to marginalized communities worldwide.

The DEI Compact: INGO Commitments toward Greater Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is an important step by the InterAction community to urgently work to improve INGO programming, operations, learning, and advocacy around DEI.

Through continued collective work, these will help our sector develop a culture across organizations that champions DEI with its practices, incentives, and accountability. As a coalition of largely U.S.-based organizations that work worldwide, the Compact blends U.S. and global perspectives.

Designed by and for the INGO community, the materials in the DEI Compact can serve as reference points for signatory organizations working to meet the Commitments of the Compact.

The DEI Compact represents our community’s promise to do more to address systemic and systematic issues of racism, sexism, tribalism, inequality, and inequity, and to do better in concrete ways.
