Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee is concentrating on three goals at this time:
To increase internal diversity of the League through networks and collaborations, we are identifying other County organizations with whom we can connect. We are contacting them, and offering support and collaboration in their endeavors.
To increase knowledge and understanding of topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion, we are hosting book discussions for our membership and the public. We recently read and discussed Biased, by Jennifer Eberhardt. On April 20, we will be discussing Our Time Is Now, by Stacey Abrams.
Through press releases, speakers, and a presence in the community, we plan to create and disseminate culturally competent information and materials in the community.
