Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is essential to the transformation of our communities as we deal with and recover from the Coronavirus Pandemic. The impact is not the same for everyone so our thinking and solutions must consider so many different aspects when discussing change.

For instance,

Black and Brown communities are absorbing a disproportionate percentage of US COVID-19- related deaths.

Women accounted for 55 percent of jobs lost during April.

LGBTQIA+ youth are particularly vulnerable to the virus's mental health impacts.

People of Asian descent are on the receiving end of hate crimes to a disproportionate degree, according to, which received more than 1,700 incident reports in six weeks.

Connecting people and organizations has become more important than ever in recent times due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. HRDIC is committed to building a more inclusive region through better private and public partnerships, learning opportunities, and sharing of best practices.

We look forward to bringing you quarterly consortium meetings, virtually as well as new and exciting opportunities to stay connected. Our first Consortium meeting will be held March 18, 2021!
