Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategies

This collection of resources is part of a Center for Congregations' workshop: Integrating Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategies in Congregations.

We are living in a time when too many polarizing issues are causing anger that unfortunately spills into the church. It has never been more important to promote an inclusive environment, so all will feel welcome. How do we integrate strategies for diversity, equity, and inclusion to respect each other’s differences, and help others do the same? These resources will help you self-reflect and discover areas where you can be more effective, and maximize your ability to foster an environment that supports our continued fellowship and growth.
