Diversity, Equality, & Inclusion in the North Texas Region
Every athlete, member and family of the North Texas Region should feel welcome and equal regardless of race, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status or other identifications. We know that racial and other forms of discrimination are not new. However, recent events have made it painfully clear that progress cannot be made unless each individual and organization within our community embraces change. These changes include, but are not limited to, making a decision to step out of our comfort zone, learn something new about someone different than them, and take action to make inclusion and equality a priority. We, at the North Texas Region, have begun an examination to address diversity, equality, and inclusion within our organization, in our clubs, and in volleyball as a sport and community.
