Who We Are

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

As leaders in the fight for social justice and breaking barriers within historically exclusive systems, we have to be forward thinking, innovative, inclusive and compassionate. By embracing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) as an organizational value, we’re intentionally making space for positive outcomes and change to flourish.

In the fall of 2019, we enrolled in the Kingdom DiversityTraining led by Ericka James, CEO, Trainer and Prophetic Strategist. The mission of the program is to build truly diverse and inclusive organizations. Research shows that 80 percent of nonprofit staff leverage personal and professional networks, which are consistently ranked as the most popular and most effective recruitment channels. But, 75 percent of white Americans have social networks without any minority presence.

There are numerous reasons to have a diverse organization, one being it lends to a better business model. According to Harvard Business Review, companies with higher-than-average diversity had 19 percent higher innovation revenues. At CORRAL, we see the gaps in diversity among our wider community, and we’re taking action and making progress. Our staff placed our organization at stage 3 where diversity is tolerated but lacks full implementation of the Better Together Model but ranked our culture at Stage 5 of Intention where diversity is accepted and celebrated.
