A word from the newly formed DEI committee

Blog Banner for Website Content (22)

Promoting diversity, equity and inclusion within an organization always has two facets: the internal work that contributes to institutional health and the external offerings that directly benefit community members. The newly formed Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee (DEI) at AQED has been hard at work these past few months to begin to address these issues both internally and externally.

The first task has been to craft a mission statement for AQED that reflects our commitment to building an organization that is equitable, accessible and inclusive to all. Once the final version has been approved by the board, it will be shared with the broader community.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns for our committee, please email us at [email protected] and we would be happy to chat! And, as always, we are in need of additional volunteers.  If any of the works mentioned above appeals to you (or if you have ideas for projects of your own), please send us an email and join the team!
