Thanks to a generous grant from Walmart.org, The Graduate! Network launched a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative in February 2020.  Equity is at the heart of the Graduate! Movement, this grant will provide TGN with the opportunity to focus intentionally on the issue of equity for our diverse communities. Ultimately, we want to provide communities with the resources and tools to better serve their communities.

On this webpage, you will find resources, a calendar of events, and a suggestions form. 

Equity can’t be an “additional duty as as assigned” to one individual or hastily formed committee. To truly achieve equity, “It takes intentionality, courage, vulnerability, and a plan.”

Our shared value approach and work:

  • Create shared value for business and society
  • Transformation the system
  • Collaborate with others
  • Complement with philanthropy
  • Lead through the business
  • Create opportunity
  • Enhancing sustainability

LearnX 2020 featured a session on DEI titled “When the Difficult Work Becomes Critical: DEI in Our Work,” which included a foundation to understanding the terminology in DEI. This was just the start to this discussion. We want to continue supporting each of your organizations in this equity work so that we can become stronger programs and communities. Along with the DEI Leadership Circle, we will host follow up discussions, a book club for professional development, and more. Stay tuned for updates.
