Davie, Marquita Nicole, "Improving Diversity And Inclusion Increasing Multiethnic Presence Within Religious Organizations" (2023). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 4963.
The program is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion within a religious organization by increasing the participation of individuals from various ethnic backgrounds. The validity of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s statement regarding the most segregated time in Christian America being Sunday mornings will be evaluated through observation, exploration, and scholarly articles. The Fort Leonard Wood Protestant Women of the Chapel will serve as a framework for program design and implementation. The program serves to boost the presence of multiethnic members and leaders by 10% and 5%, respectively. This program will adhere to a logic model that will include five (5) objectives, outputs, and outcomes that showcase the considerable advantages of participating in the proposed service.
