Professional Development Session for Council Staff

Shaping Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive World Affairs Councils

Though World Affairs Councils study the world, and our communities are more multicultural than ever, our Councils rarely reflect the diversity of our communities. To be most meaningful for all involved, Council efforts in diversity, equity, and inclusion require thoughtful planning, promotion, regular reflection, and plenty of conversation. Betty Cruz (WAC Pittsburgh) and Jackie Miller (WAC Seattle) will share what their leadership journeys toward equity have looked like and suggest tangible ways that Councils can become more actively inclusive.

(This session is for World Affairs Council staff and board members only.)
