Organizations listed under this section may be recently established or still in development. The DEI committee would still like to promote these organizations in an effort to help them reach a wider audience. For GW specific organizations, please see the GWU Organization section listed on this page.
Language to describe racial and ethnic groups fluctuates depending on location and time. For the purposes of this resource guide, the DEI Committee will use the five categories that United States Census Bureau uses when collecting its data (please see below for listed categories). To learn more about the five categories and why the Census Bureau uses these in collecting data, please read 'About the Topic of Race' on the Census' website. The DEI committee strives to maintain consistent language and will re-evaluate and if necessary, make appropriate changes.
