About Us 

The Diversity Center is excited to celebrate our 20th Anniversary Walk, Rock, Roll and Run both virtually and in-person at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on May 7, 2022. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are adjusting our in-person event to adhere to CDC guidelines and ensure the health, safety, and cooperation of everyone in our community!

The Diversity Center is the leading advocate for justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in Northeast Ohio. Diversity has been our mission – and our challenge – since 1927. We believe diversity makes us all stronger – in our classrooms, our workplaces, and across our community. But achieving diversity is harder than ever. In today’s polarized environment, anti-Semitism, bigotry, and racism continue to thrive. Our work has never been more important.

When you support our work, you are helping a new generation of students and future leaders embrace their differences and become change agents for inclusion and diversity in our region. Your sponsorship(s) will allow us the opportunity to empower more than 10,000 youth and educators in 11 counties during the 2022-2023 academic year.

Thank you for helping us to create communities where all people are connected, respected, and valued. Your generous support allows us to combat all forms of hate including anti-Semitism, bias, bigotry, and racism.
