“A Change is Gonna Come”: The New Diversity Equity and Inclusion Manual for Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) for State Prisoners Program

Event Dates

In June 2021, President Biden penned the Executive Order on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility in the Federal Workforce, building upon the Executive Order he signed on his first day in office. In this updated Executive Order, President Biden directs the federal government, in all its parts, to, “define standards of success for diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility efforts based on leading policies and practices in the public and private sectors; [and]…identify strategies to advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, and eliminate, where applicable, barriers to equity…” With that in mind, this webinar will describe the forthcoming Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) for State Prisoners Program Diversity Equity and Inclusion manual. Presenters will discuss why this manual is being composed now, the purpose of the manual, and how RSAT programs can benefit from implementing its contents.
