Equity - Diversity - Inclusion - these concepts require an empathetic understanding between those who have been born into privileges and those who have been discriminated because of race, disability or other backgrounds too many to list. Our perspectives are not always rounded by our personal experiences therefore education is key.

Now is a great time to develop the knowledge and skills you need to build deeper community connections by trying out these online learning tools. The modules are short, fun - and helpful for building more  inclusive relationships with people of all backgounds.
