Living Our Mission of Equity By Charmen Goehring
2020 has certainly been an interesting year — between a pandemic, increased racial tensions and now mail-in ballot drama, it’s been a year of stepping back and re-evaluating how we address issues in our nation.
Our branch board has been talking about diversity and equity in our branch and AAUW as an organization. We hope you will join us in a monthly equity conversation looking at our own biases and what actions we can take to attract diversity to our branch and become better people in the process. We are reading the book, “So You Want to Talk About Race” by Ijeoma Oluo and discussing what we have read, along with exploring other issues related to race and equity.
We will meet the second Wednesday of each month from 7 to 8 p.m. on Zoom. The Zoom meeting code is 737 420 3780 or you can join using this link. We will discuss the intro and chapters 6 & 7 on Nov. 11 at 7pm. If you have questions and to RSVP, please email Charmen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
