Title: Nonprofit Capacity Building: Management Practices that Nurture Sustainability
By: ALSO Consultant Sharmili Majmudar, MSW

In an environmental context, "sustainability" generally means finding a way to use resources in a manner that prevents their depletion. Applying the environmental definition to the nonprofit context applies a more holistic, trauma-informed lens to sustainability. If we consider nonprofit sustainability in this manner, we have to consider how we define our resources, and what it means to prevent their depletion as critical to perpetuating our ability to fulfill our missions. Conceptualizing sustainability as holistic means that our inventory of resources include not only funding, but also talent, time, reputation, community, culture, traditions, relationships, and infrastructure.

Title: Using an Intersectional Lens for Promoting Access and Inclusion  
By: ALSO Consultant Shirley Paceley, MS

In working with “underserved populations,” people may belong to more than one historically oppressed or marginalized group, and experience multiple social inequities. Every group has members with disabilities. This resource developed for grantees funded by the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) Grants for Outreach and Services to Underserved Populations Program  is intended to promote intersectional thinking and provide insight as to practices and approaches by which people with multiple social identities living with a disability can be included equally in services aimed at supporting survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
