Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA)

We are passionate about creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive creative community. We collaborate with our partners in the Sacramento Region to implement diversity initiatives that serve students, designers, and people from marginalized or underserved backgrounds. We aim to create a sense of belonging for everyone, inside and outside of CCA.

What DEIA means for CCA

When we embrace Diversity, we make our organizations and communities stronger, more innovative, and more competitive.


Our organization’s diversity is exemplified by the unique differences within our creative community such as but not limited to race, gender and sexual orientation.


We position equity at the forefront of our work to ensure everyone has the same opportunities to succeed; CCA provides our community with the resources and support they need to reach their full potential within our creative economy.


We foster Inclusion throughout our programming and strive to create a sense of belonging for everyone, regardless of their background.

Accessibility for All

We invite our community to participate fully in our organization by ensuring that our programs, services and facilities are available to every community member.

It's about connecting with people who are different from you in authentic and meaningful ways. It's about being aware of our society's power structures and biases while designing a product to include everyone.

How we put DEIA to practice

Although we are committed to providing diverse and inclusive events throughout our programming we also make a point to include specific engagements that focus on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility. Our goal at our 2023 Pride is a Protest event was to celebrate and promote LGBTQ+ rights, visibility, and acceptance through the power of art and creativity. This event brought together local artists, activists, and community members in our region to showcase their work that reflects the spirit of Pride and further discuss how creatives use their talent to advocate for causes they care about. Z LaFrance (they/them) created a powerful and inspirational poster series that was showcased at the 
Pride is a Protest showcase in 2023 hosted by CCA.
We are building out a Resource Library for all things diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility. From book recommendations to workshops, trainings, and some of our favorite podcasts that highlight this important work and allyship.
