As stewards of higher education, the Louisiana Community and Technical College System recognizes the obligation and responsibility to promote and encourage diversity, equity, and inclusivity. In light of recent tragic events, LCTCS is now committed more than ever. The system office staff for two-year public colleges in Louisiana were tasked with the development and implementation of various initiatives to address diversity, equity, and inclusivity. The presentation will outline the system call to action, including the development of diversity dashboards, creating a statewide committee/task force to generate actionable recommendations, and enhancing services and training to faculty, staff, and students.
