Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI)

The Southeastern CT Cultural Coalition and the Community Foundation of Eastern CT,  partnered to present two Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Workshops facilitated by Jamal Jimerson of Minority Inclusion Project.  This page provides information about those workshops and materials, links and contact information for your organization to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in your organization and in the region.

Since March 2019, we have been one of four organizations in New London County that have participated in the second cohort of the Board Diversity Initiative, Minority Inclusion Project Incorporated’s main program.
September 5, 2019 was the closing ceremony for the New London BDI cohort. We presented our diversity, equity, and inclusion action plans. Thank you to Jamal and Esther of MIP and to our fellow cohort participants New England Science & Sailing FoundationLa Grua Center and The Connecticut Audubon Society. Thank you to Community Foundation of Eastern CT and funding partners who made the cohort possible!
