The OkACTE Diversity Action Committee meets quarterly to discuss, communicate and create collaborations in ongoing and upcoming initiatives and events that support the goal of enhancing the environment for diversity, inclusion and equity across the Oklahoma Career Tech System.
The Diversity Action Committee serves to untie the profession of career and technology and advocate awareness of diversity among OkACTE, the students that are taught, and businesses in which our members are involved. Each of the 12 OkACTE divisions has a chairperson appointed or elected to serve on the committee.
The Diversity Action Committee has committed to hosting an annual event, the Diversity Symposium. The Diversity Symposium has addressed issues such as Unconscious Biases, Generational Differences, LGBTQ+ issues and more. The Diversity Symposium is open to any OkACTE member to attend.
Due to Covid-19, the Diversity Action committee will forego hosting its annual signature event, instead, it will offer a lecture series, the Partners In Change Series. The lecture series will highlight diversity issues and it is open to OkACTE membership to attend.
