Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At the 2020 Annual Meeting, the incoming Board of Directors made a commitment to this Club to carefully and systematically review our club’s diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of this organization.  One of the first action items was to establish a Diversity & Inclusion Chair and Committee.   The first initiative of the committee was to develop the first class of Diversity Ambassadors. This program enables each Diversity Ambassador to create an environment that encourages more natural engagement, integrates a culture of inclusion and respect, and serves as a structure for organizations (including employers) who are looking for ways to enhance their diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Program consists of several panel discussions with esteemed speakers in a smaller setting in order to encourage open conversations. In addition to the panel discussions, smaller learn, socialize, and serve events will be included. After completing the Diversity Equity & Inclusion Program, ambassadors will be able to share what they’ve learned to make a change in the Club and in their community and will earn a Certification of Completion in recognition of their growth and professional development.
