DEI Resource Bank


Below you will find a number of resources that we encourage you to explore.

The Diversity Equity & Racial Justice Action Team

Mission Statement

The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Racial Justice (DEIRJ) Action Team of the Jefferson Community Collaborative will work to strengthen community engagement, equity, and inclusion while advancing racial justice with Collaborative partners. 


Action Statement

The DEIRJ Action Team embraces the concept of transformative learning. Through focused and intentional community engagement, its members will embrace multiple community voices and promote transparency, patience, and trust. The DEIRJ Action Team will:

  • Be nimble and responsive to Collaborative partner needs as they arise.
  • Advocate for professional development and technical assistance opportunities.
  • Participate in activities that elevate community voice for the purpose of improving service delivery and ensuring equity in decision making.
  • Share resources with Collaborative partners.

DEI Resource Bank for Community Organizations

The team has also compiled a resource bank to provide Jefferson Area organizations with best practices and resources to initiate and further these important conversations and drive action around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) with board, staff, and stakeholders at your organization.

If you have a resource you think should be added to the list or a story to share on how your organization is developing strategies to embrace DEI more fully, we’d love to hear from you! Please email your ideas and suggestions to
