DEIA Resources

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

We, the Board of Directors at DOVIA Colorado, believe there is enormous opportunity to dismantle systems of exclusion and oppression, and build stronger, smarter, safer communities for consideration. This page is dedicated to resources we have found to be helpful in DEIA work across our shared industry. It also includes a letter from the DOVIA Colorado board and a DEIA List of Actionable Items for volunteer engagement professionals that DOVIA Colorado developed in conjunction with Spark the Change
