CREED

Coalition for Racial & Ethnic Equity in Development
Equal Space for Every Creed & Race

Learning Hub

Using this online platform, CREED seeks to nurture a Racial and Ethnic Equity (REE) learning community. This Learning Hub invites CREED members to share best practices, tools, and resources to build mutual learning. We expect to use the Learning Hub to communicate the achievements of our member organizations as we advance on our individual REE journeys.

CREED celebrates the DEI and REE efforts that other organizations, clients, and associations are leading in our industry. We recognize the complementary nature of this work, and by linking together on the Learning Hub we hope to build synergies.
