Inclusion, Access, Equity and Diversity
ACTE Stands in Solidarity
ACTE condemns institutional racism in all of its forms and believes in social justice and civil rights. Events in the last year have focused on societal issues—first affecting our Black Community and now, regrettably, Asian Americans. As an organization, we continue to reaffirm our existing statement:
ACTE promotes high quality CTE programs for diverse audiences. We continue to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports and celebrates the diversity of the CTE community. We are committed to inclusion, access, equity, and diversity throughout our organization.
Purpose of the Inclusion, Access, Equity and Diversity (IAED) Advisory Group
