The Institute for Training and Development centers multiculturalism, equity and inclusion in its mission to deepen understanding, spread knowledge, exchange ideas and share culture with, and among, its program participants. We design program materials, hire staff, select speakers, and make decisions with these values at the forefront. We provide equal opportunity to, and encourage applications from people of all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, sexual orientations, gender identifications, incomes, ages, and physical abilities. We design programs that expose participants to the varying narratives about the United States, its people, its challenges and its triumphs. In doing so, ITD strives to expose participants to the multilayered and complex tapestry of America’s past, and current landscape.
