New LWVE Study Adopted

In February 2021, the LWVE membership adopted a new study on Racial Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). The study will focus on businesses, institutions and organizations in the community, and is being co-chaired by Andy Otness and Paulette Hastings.

We are calling on members to join the study committee! The time commitment is now through March 2022. Participation may include researching existing DEI materials, interviewing entities in the community, compiling data, writing, and presenting findings. If interested in being a committee member, please email us at [email protected].
