As the demographics across North Carolina continue to change, Extension professionals are being called upon to develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to integrate diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) into their work with community members and stakeholders.
The purpose of this page is to center DEIA within North Carolina Cooperative Extension by providing a database of helpful resources and connecting Extension staff to opportunities for professional development and collaboration. Be sure to visit frequently, as we intend to make a lot of updates in the weeks and months ahead.
We look forward to working with you!
