  1. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion This presentation was created by the Kiwanis International 2021-22 DEI Committee.

  2. Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced. -James Baldwin

  3. Educational objectives 1. To define, describe and explore examples of diversity, equity and inclusion. 2. To apply these examples to a healthy Kiwanis club experience. 3. To provide resources for further exploration on the topics of diversity, equity and inclusion.

  4. Community guidelines You may feel uncomfortable discussing some of the topics. That s OK. Be an active listener. Avoid making assumptions about other people s identities. What is shared here stays here, and what is learned here leaves here.

  5. Not on todays agenda Blaming or shaming. Forcing a hidden agenda on you. Taking a political stance.
