Our Mission

The Wake PTA Council DEI committee provides support through coaching, education, resources, and a safe place for local units to come together to brainstorm and share best practices. 

Join Us!

We are encouraging local units to name a committee chair to begin the process. If you are interested in chairing your local PTA unit DEI committee, please fill out the Google form.

If you have questions, please reach out to Stephanie Mitchell at equity@wakepta.org

Check out the new Multicultural Reference Guide for PTA leaders to further your own learning about and connection to historically under-represented groups in PTA.

Wake PTA Council DEI Mini-Grant Opportunity

The Wake PTA Council Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee is excited to announce that we are offering DEI mini grants to qualifying PTA units. These grants should be used to increase engagement of all families in PTA activities, expose students to new programs that emphasize the diversity of the school population, and/or help ensure events and fundraising are accessible, equitable, and inclusive. For more important information and to apply for a mini-grant, please follow this link to our short form: 

PTA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. Our mission requires that diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) be central to our work and used in our day-to-day decisions and actions.
