About us


Our strategic goals focus on building capacity and strengthening impact

As a non-profit organization, our bottomline isn’t profits. It’s impact. Our 2019-2023 strategic goals focus on both on achieving sustainability as an organization and on extending our influence.


The Regional Diversity Roundtable is committed to being a leader in supporting organizations, institutions, and the community to be diverse and equitable in order to provide services that are fair, inclusive and culturally appropriate.


To promote respect and equity within organizations, institutions, and individuals for an inclusive and harmonious community.

We encourage stakeholders to recognize, respect, and embrace each individual’s diversity and believe that by working together we can move from the acknowledgment of diversity to the institutionalization of diversity in our respective core values, structures, workforce, procedures and guidelines enabling an environment that is supportive, accessible, and equitable in its practices.
