Apra, a Smithbucklin client, is the premier organization that serves, represents, and works to advance prospect development professionals. The organization, which represents professionals who strategically harness information and data to drive fundraising for philanthropic institutions, has long prioritized diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). One of the major ways Apra has ensured DEI stays at the forefront of the organization is by expanding its internal policies and guidelines into an external resource for philanthropy, prospect research, and data, dubbed “The DEI Data Guide.”
Hear Smithbucklin’s own Robin Rone, executive director of Apra and Smithbucklin’s head of DEI, discuss how this valuable tool was created, adopted as the go-to tool in the industry, and established Apra as a thought leader in the DEI space.
