Communicating clearly about equity
The NRCS Equity Action Plan for Fiscal Years 2022-2026, Priority Action 1.3, outlines a goal of developing resource materials that clearly identify the history of government to envision and operationalize equity in NRCS, and utilize clear and easily understood definitions of equity and inequity, implicit and explicit bias, and individual, institutional, and systemic discrimination.
The following publications represent progress toward that goal:
- The NRCS Equity Division brochure presents the mission, vision, and core values of the NRCS Equity Division, the NRCS Equity Action Plan, and additional program equity foundational information.
- The NRCS Equity Division fact sheet includes sections that define equity and other key terms, and provide links to foundational information. The fact sheet also presents the mission, vision, and core values of the NRCS Equity Division, outlines its equity focus, and explains why achieving equity is a priority.
