Diversity Resource Guide
CAD has developed a Resource Guide of local businesses and agencies that provide goods and services for people of diverse backgrounds. This free guide is to help new arrivals to our community locate the products and services they need and to help them feel welcomed and included. Please let us know if you have suggestions for additional businesses and agencies to include in the Resource Guide!

Diversity Speakers & Trainers Bureau
CAD has compiled a list of diversity speakers and trainers. Please let us know of additional speakers or trainers to add to the bureau or of needed corrections to the current listings.
