Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

TAA’s Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (CDEI) was established in 2020 to advise the TAA Council on actions and positions the organization can take to positive impact the DEI of TAA itself, and of academic authoring in general.

The Committee will communicate directly with Council or the membership as we have relevant items to share with you. This space will be the focal point for archiving the work of TAA and the CDEI as we organize and implement actions. This is ongoing, long-term work, so we hope you will check the space from time to time for new developments.

Here are links to Statements of Council, work of the Committee, and resources you may find useful as you work toward creating greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in your own professional contexts.
