If you didn’t know already, here at DiveIn our mission is to empower people to get involved with the causes they care about in their local communities. As part of that mission, we’re starting the Community Dive as a way to help people make a real local impact. We’ll share monthly updates on what's going on in the DiveIn ecosystem along with some resources, articles, and opportunities taking place in your own backyard.
We hope you're as excited as we are and we’d love to hear what you think. If you have any feedback, please don't be shy. =)
In case you missed it, we hosted our first ever DiveIn Community Mixer at San Francisco's Impact Hub on April 23rd. We had a great panel of speakers, an amazing audience, and a killer taco bar. Here are some of our favorite quotes from the night,
The DiveIn Mixer was not meant to be a single event, but a starting point for the important work that must be done to increase local impact at scale. We hope you'll join us in future events designed to educate our peers and bring us closer to the communities we aim to serve.
Last year, we released a product that didn't meet our standards and, most importantly, didn't empower people to make a local impact in the way that we had envisioned. As a result, we made the difficult decision to remove our products from the market and refresh our approach. We're now beyond excited to share that we'll be releasing our new app this spring. Our app will have thousands of volunteer opportunities and events across the country and will help people to realize their agency to make a lasting local impact. Invite your friends to DiveIn with us and sign up on our website for updates!
It's no secret that many nonprofits are strapped for cash and generally lack the bandwidth to launch expensive social media campaigns designed to attract new audiences.

With so many public and high-profile discrimination scandals, many companies are hiring CDOs (Chief Diversity Officers). While having a CDO is better than not having one at all, tasking one individual with the job of remedying a toxic workplace culture and developing strategies to attract and retain diverse talent is a huge burden, to say the least. Diversity and inclusion are more than just buzzwords. They need to be taken seriously so organizations can overcome implicit bias and systematic racism from within. Check out Inclusion Is Invisible: What You Should Measure for inclusion benchmarks that your company can implement to keep your workplace thriving with culture.
