Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Toolkit Volume 1: Internal Organization Practices

Organizational Author: Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed

Date Published: 5/2/22

Resource Type: Toolkit

This toolkit was created for use by members and partners of the Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed. Volume 1 of the toolkit focuses on DEIJ within an organization’s culture rather than in its external or programmatic engagement. The overemphasis of external work through outreach implicitly assumes that all that promoting diversity entails is the creation of an effective slogan or advertising campaign, which could not be further from the truth. Diversity is not “the challenge of the moment”, but a goal that should be incorporated throughout an organization’s values and activities. Organizations that approach equity work by creating a solid foundation of internal organizational work find that they are more successful with meeting their goals.
