Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Social Justice Resources

Join Our Book Club!

The COEEA Equity and Inclusion Committee knows it would be helpful if we all educated ourselves about the systemic racism in our country and organizations through reading or listening to the many books about racism that are available. The better educated we are on the issues of racism the better able we will be to understand and help change our organizations and hopefully the world.

Please let COEEA Equity and Inclusion Committee Member, Wendy Sabol, wsabol@ansoniact.org, know if you would like to be part of this reading/listening/discussion group. We will be reading or listening to a book about racism and then get together via Zoom to discuss everyone’s thoughts. See here for more details.
