The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) Team started as a task force to address the lack of diversity in the League of Women Voters of Berkeley, Albany, Emeryville (LWVBAE) and make our organization more equitable and inclusive. The task force’s initial goal was to hire a DEI consultant and implement their recommendations. From 2019-2020, the task force hired Healing Equity United to first conduct surveys and a focus group and then make a list of recommendations. Throughout the process, the task force realized that in order to be truly committed to DEI, our League needed a permanent DEI team.

Our goals now are to continue working in our League as we practice using a DEI lens when analyzing our organizational culture; when we evaluate and recommend public policies; and in building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization overall. As we grow as a team and co-create our scope of work with League leaders, we invite you to join us in this work. Please email kandea@lwvbae.org if you are interested in joining.
