Planning for a Diverse and Equitable Future

Diversity and Marginalized Communities


What is a marginalized community?

Marginalized communities refer to groups of people who experience social, economic, and/or political exclusion or discrimination based on characteristics such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, disability, or religion. These communities often face systemic disadvantages, limited access to opportunities, and unequal treatment in various aspects of life, including education, employment, healthcare, housing, and criminal justice. Marginalization can perpetuate cycles of poverty and restrict individuals’ ability to fully participate in society. Recognizing and addressing the unique challenges faced by marginalized communities is essential for promoting social justice, equity, and inclusivity, as well as dismantling the structures that perpetuate their marginalization.
