Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Resources
National Children’s Alliance (NCA) is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within our staff, board, and Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) movement. A diverse, equitable, and inclusive movement is critical not only to achieve a just and welcoming work environment for our workforce and partners but also because it is impossible to effectively serve children and families across this country without a movement of agencies and professionals that reflect them and understand their needs.
NCA has collected these resources, created by ourselves and our many partners, to help CACs build on their DEI efforts at their center and with their multidisciplinary team. We seek to offer information on underrepresented and marginalized groups as it relates to the work we do to serve children and families in the field, as well as provide resources and tools that can help you create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace at your CAC. See how NCA is embedding a culture of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion here.
NCA is uniquely positioned to ensure CACs have the resources they need to truly serve America’s diverse population and also that their accreditation with us requires that they do so equitably and inclusively.

The time is now to help organizations succeed in their efforts to strengthen diversity, equity, and inclusion through the exchange of information. We believe that an organization that prioritizes diversity, equity, and inclusion creates an environment that respects and values differences. Let's foster cultures that minimize bias and celebrates various perspectives.
Please share your DEI resources and tools that are being successfully used in your organizational missions, visions, and values and cascaded throughout your organizational policies and procedures.
Use the Open Forum community as a gathering place, where you can join us in sharing with the field the DEI tools being used at your CAC - share and ask questions!
