Who We Are

The face of the Fox Cities has changed. People of many cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds have come to this area and enriched our community.

Celebrate Diversity Fox Cities is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization created out of merger of previous non-profits Toward Community: Unity in Diversity and Fox Cities Rotary Multicultural Center. We believe that every person is worthy of dignity and respect. Celebrate Diversity Fox Cities Board Members bring together over 20 years of diversity and inclusion experience in the Fox Cities area working locally to create a more welcoming and inclusive community. We serve our mission through education, outreach, advocacy, and public events.

Our all-volunteer board meets bi-monthly on the third Tuesday for closed meetings. Our committee meetings are open to all community members. We welcome new members. 

Contact us for more information.
