Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
What is Diversity, Equity & Inclusion?
Recent events have caused us to reflect, dialogue and identify more proactive ways to address racism, injustices, diversity, equity, engagement and inclusion.
“Diversity, equity, and inclusion is a term most used to describe a training format in the workplace. DEI training is utilized to encourage functional knowledge of fellow employees’ identities and how to navigate diversity in an organization. That said, the concept of DEI has a much broader scope of application.”

CASA of the Continental Divide acknowledges we are located on the traditional and ancestral lands of the Southern Utes, Uncompahgre Utes, Northern/ White River Utes, and Cheyenne peoples past and present. We acknowledge 48 contemporary tribal nations are historically tied to the lands that make up the state of Colorado. In our daily lives, let us honor and respect those who stewarded the land through generations.
CASACD acknowledges this statement will evolve as we continue to learn the history of the land we occupy. We are in the process of educating ourselves about the atrocities that took place against indigenous peoples on this land.
We would be humbled by your feedback
