Topic: Diversity -
Presenter: Diversity Council -
Diversity Council is a catalyst and convener, creating environments that allow every person the
opportunity to reach their full potential. They transform organizations, empower adults and
youth to act as change makers, equip and mobilize nontraditional leaders, and galvanize equity work in
the region. Their goal is to create equitable and inclusive communities where all individuals are
empowered, conscientious, and courageous.
Diversity Council began in 1989 as Building Equality Together (BET) when the leadership of Rochester
Public Schools recognized the need to combat racism and discrimination and worked with community
leaders to form an independent nonprofit organization to meet this need.
Since that time, the Diversity Council's focus has grown to include not only students, but also adults,
communities, and organizations; not only race, but the full spectrum of human difference. They recognize
that prejudice and privilege are engrained in the systems and culture of our nation, and that achieving
equitable entities and communities demands addressing these deeply rooted causes of injustice by
changing policies and practices as well as hearts and minds.
Diversity Council concentrates its work in three areas: civic equity, health equity, and educational equity.
They accomplish their goals by:
• Identifying, analyzing, and publicizing issues and opportunities through outreach, print, and web
• Brokering action by facilitating dialogue and convening collaborative workgroups.
• Operating programs that support leaders who will not only be successful in current systems, but
also change systems.
• Educating youth and adults through trainings, consultations, and arts and cultural activities.
All of their work is grounded in current research and theory as well as best practices in the field. Thirty-one
years of experience and a reputation for excellence have established them as one of Minnesota’s
leaders in diversity and equity.
