About the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Toolkit
Activating and fully integrating your organization’s values for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) will increase your organizational resilience, promote more ethical community partnerships, and increase your reputability and leadership in the field. Our 7-part DEI toolkit series provides frameworks and guidance so you can thoughtfully address historic inequities while building better practices and increasing your organization’s ability to work for a just and healthy world everyone can enjoy.
Each toolkit is themed for accessibility and ease of use. You’ll find webinars, workshops, guides, templates, and activities to increase your organization’s readiness, competency, and capacity for diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout all components of your work.
TREC is committed to growing our offerings through these toolkits, so please check back in for new additions throughout the year.

Accessibility and Inclusivity in the Workplace
Accessibility in the workplace is the practice of making information, tasks and activities, and the work environment practical, meaningful, and usable for as many people as possible. Inclusion is the behaviors within team culture that encourages everyone to feel heard and valued for their individual skills and uniqueness. Through this guide, we review inclusive practices and considerations to take when proactively addressing accessibility at the virtual and physical workplace. After reviewing the guide, this worksheet can be used to assess your own organization’s accessibility and inclusion policies and procedures and identify areas to improve.
