Shaping Excellence with Inclusion, Innovation and Improvement


It's an extraordinary privilege to have been a part of something genuinely impactful—the DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility) Task Force contributing to the 2023-2024 Communities of Excellence Framework by the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program. The endeavor consisted of creating a framework that fosters a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and resilience within our nation's communities. The opportunity to participate in this journey has enriched my perspective on the transformative power of principles that underpin our communities.


A Mission for Change

Our task force embarked on a mission—to embed the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and resilience into the very fabric of the Communities of Excellence Framework. The objective was clear: to empower our nation's communities with a toolkit that fosters inclusive and innovative solutions, specifically addressing the critical challenges in health, education, employment, and social conditions.


Innovation, Inclusion, and Improvement

It has been a privilege to contribute to a framework that transcends traditional benchmarks of excellence. Beyond the standards, we endeavored to create a blueprint for communities that meet expectations and redefine them. It's about weaving a tapestry where diversity is celebrated, equity is non-negotiable, and inclusion is the foundation upon which progress is built.


The Ripple Effect

As I reflect on this journey, I'm struck by the power of collaboration and filled with excitement for the possibilities that lie ahead. The 2023-2024 Communities of Excellence Framework is not just a document; it's a catalyst for positive change. It invites communities nationwide to embrace these principles and, in doing so, pave the way for transformative, resilient, and thriving societies.
