Coalition for Racial & Ethnic Equity in Development
Equal Space for Every Creed & Race
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.
On February 22, 2023, CREED hosted its first anniversary event, Continuing to Build Courage, Capabilities, and Community to Advance Racial and Ethnic Equity. Featured speakers included USAID Counselor Clinton D. White; Assistant Secretary of State for the Western Hemisphere Affairs Ambassador Brian A. Nichols; President of PepsiCo Foundation C.D. Glin; Director of the Ralph Bunche International Affairs Center at Howard University Tonija Navas; and UNICEF USA’ Vice President Vice President of Diversity, Racial Equity & Belonging Muna Idow.
