Meet the Action Team

AUCD Diversity & Inclusion Toolkit Logo

Seven AUCD network members with experience and expertise in effecting organizations change related to cultural and linguistic competence, diversity, and inclusion were competitively selected to serve as Diversity & Inclusion Action Team members. Their role is to advise on and champion two AIDD-funded initiatives: Diversity & Inclusion Action Plan and the Diversity & Inclusion Training Action Plan. The goal of these projects is to develop focused plans and resources for the UCEDD network to reduce and eventually end disparities and inequities in access to and use of services for people with developmental disabilities of all ages and their families who are from underserved racial, ethnic, and linguistic groups.
