We're encouraging access, equity, and respect for all.

DRT started from an idea proposed in 2000, which led to the first Diversity Summit and roundtable meeting in 2003. Since then, there have been regular monthly meetings. Through our collective efforts, we've worked toward inclusion. We encourage leadership and promote strategies that value diversity in attitudes, policies, and practices. We also address conditions of prejudice and discrimination.
