The Melton Foundation's ongoing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts aim to continuously create more inclusive and equitable spaces for all our stakeholders, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and other personal characteristics. It is thanks to our community which aims to consistently challenge themselves to expand the definition of DEI, that there is explicit and intentional incorporation of accessibility and belonging to our DEI efforts (DEIAB).
Black History Month, also known as African American History Month, is celebrated in the United States (and Canada) during the month of February. The observance is an important time to recognize and honor the contributions and achievements of African Americans throughout U.S. history.
To celebrate, the Melton Foundation shares the historical influence of African Americans and the tangible impact of the Civil Rights movement on Immigration in the United States, a key factor in why the Melton Foundation USA is the largest Senior Fellow region.
