The Diversity and Equity in Environmental Programs (DEEP) Collaborative brings together local community organizations and university-led initiatives that address diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), K-12 education, and the environment.
The purpose of the DEEP Collaborative is to 1) facilitate the development and growth of environmental-focused diversity and inclusion programs in the Triangle and 2) identify potential areas of overlap and partnership.
A critical goal of the DEEP Collaborative is to build the capacity of environmental organizations to understand the local and global context of environmental injustice in relation to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and ability. The DEEP Collaborative also provides a means for community members to meet, share, and exchange ideas regularly.
