National Extension Response Resources Site to Include Resources for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

 

eXtension has updated virtual.extension.org with a collection of resources related to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. This is just the start, if you have other similar resources to share, we invite you to submit them to contact-us@extension.org.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the eXtension Foundation launched virtual.extension.org to create a national resource site for Cooperative Extension professionals. The purpose of this site was and still is to help Extension professionals work collaboratively in a virtual world, and to share federal and institutional responses and resources to COVID-19. Additionally, a section was included on dealing with disasters and epidemics, highlighting information from the Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN). Since March, 2020, nearly 200 contributions were made to this site from the Cooperative Extension System. The eXtension Foundation will continue to maintain and update this site with contributions made from across the system. 

In recent weeks, another opportunity for this site has become apparent. Our mission is to serve the U.S. Cooperative Extension System by partnering to make a greater collective impact and promote accessibility to all in communities across the nation.  We are committed to fostering inclusive work where diversity is welcomed, encouraged, and leveraged for growth, new knowledge, and community vitality.
