DEIB Resources

As noted in our DEIB Mission Statement, Carney Sandoe is “committed to the importance of increasing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging – both within our own organization and among the educational communities with whom we partner.”

We know there is still a long road ahead, and we have more work to do. As we continue to listen and educate ourselves, examine our practices, and support our schools and candidates, we are including this page as a resource. Please use and share it broadly.
