WOMEN AND CULTURE GROUP
DIVERSITY COMMITTEE – The Diversity Committee was created in 2014 in response to the obvious need to expand our knowledge about other cultures, religions, races, ethnicities. In 2019 AAUW declared DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) as a primary mission of the organization. We were ahead of the game. We have heard stories of Indigenous MMIW, Russian women, Muslim women, women of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Ukraine, Women of Color among our own members, STEM women of science, and so many more. We have been enriched by the stories of these women. Every June, we honor Extraordinary Women. Our goal is to continue this tradition. Our programs are called Women and Culture.
We usually meet the fourth Thursday of the month, 1:00 at the homes of members, but the times and places are flexible.
