Diversity & Inclusion Committee Meeting

Are you interested in making some change? Join the Diversity & Inclusion Committee meeting via Zoom. At the beginning of each committee meeting, members introduce themselves with names, pronouns, and why they are in attendance. They quickly review their mission and charge, which the committee all had a hand in crafting, before moving on to any agenda items. While they welcome additional items for review, they will always cover their diversity and inclusion chapter initiatives which include: #DoBetterMN campaign, accessibility to AIGA memberships, AIGA event audit reviews, and plans for annual equity and inclusion all-member training. All are welcome to attend committee meetings. Please contact the Director of Diversity & Inclusion if you plan to attend or have additional questions.
