League of Women Voters – Whitewater Area Invites All to Conversation on Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Editor’s Note: This information was provided by the League of Women Voters-Whitewater Area.

The League of Women Voters-Whitewater Area invites its members and the public to participate in “A Conversation on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI),” on Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 6:30 PM.

Since its founding in 1920, the League’s reputation as a trusted source for voter information has rested on its Nonpartisanship Policy, which states, “[League] does not support or oppose any political party or candidate.” Likewise, the League’s relatively new DEI Policy, protects the League’s good name as an organization, “fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in principle and in practice.” These two policies represent our core values. But has our League fully internalized what it means to be a diverse, equitable and inclusive organization? This meeting is designed to answer that question.

Furthermore, the program will not only conclude with actionable takeaways but also the exciting announcement of our new Book Club, designed to continue our exploration of the meaning, impact, value, need, and urgency of DEI.

This event will be virtual via Zoom. To attend live, please join the meeting by using the URL: https://bit.ly/lwv-ww_membership_dei
