Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion
We are committed to being an inclusive community and to better reflect the students and communities we serve. Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (ED&I) is considered a “super pillar” in the 2021-2025 NAEA Strategic Vision. It is both its own unique goal as well as one that is interwoven across the other 4 (Learning, Research & Knowledge, Advocacy & Policy, and Community Vibrancy). Its purpose is to ensure that NAEA’s community and organizational operations are inclusive and open to all. The NAEA ED&I Commission works in concert with practitioners and state and national leaders in the field to establish comprehensive strategies that work from the classroom outward, with direction and tools for addressing ED&I.
