Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Resources for Classrooms
Diversity, equity, and inclusion, or DEI, is a way of thinking and being in the world that helps us respect and transcend our differences. Through DEI, learners understand that while we all experience the world differently, there's power in honoring our shared humanity. Solidarity is our only path to a better world where everyone is given dignity and security.
Schools are perfect places to build these critical skills. In classrooms, students can discuss how to create a more inclusive world that values diversity, builds solidarity, practices empathy, and battles racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, and more. The resources we've curated below -- which highlight our world's vast diversity and promote equity -- will open students' minds, get them to reflect on their own privileges, and help them better understand other people, perspectives, and cultures. Some of these picks will also cultivate students' perspective-taking and integrity, putting students on the path to social change and activism.
