Are you interested in making some change?

Join the Diversity & Inclusion Committee at our retreat happening at The Coven. Please contact the Director of Diversity & Inclusion if you plan to attend or have additional questions.

At the beginning of each committee meeting, we introduce ourselves with our name, pronouns, and why we are in attendance. We quickly review our mission and charge, which we all had a hand in crafting, before moving on to any agenda items. While we welcome additional items for review, we will always cover our diversity and inclusion chapter initiatives which include: our #DoBetterMN campaign, AIGA event audits, and scholarship opportunities. All are welcome to attend our committee meetings and/or retreat.
