Introducing the Region VI Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee
NCURA Region VI is pleased to introduce the inaugural members of the regional Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee:
More information about our committee members will be accessible on the forthcoming DEI page on the NCURA Region VI website, which will be released very soon.
The committee’s first action was to develop and adopt the following mission statement:
NCURA’s Region VI DEI Committee aligns with the Council’s overall goal of promoting the development of research administration as a professional field while stimulating the personal growth of the members of the Council.
Region VI’s committee dedicates their time and resources to creating and maintaining a safe and welcoming environment that embraces and celebrates diversity, equity, and inclusion regionally, nationally, and globally.
These principles are vital to the Region’s sustainability and growth as well as the breadth of educational and professional opportunities offered. The committee’s goal is to empower members to participate, learn, lead, educate, celebrate and advocate for growth and learning that reflects the dynamic and universal world we live in.
We would love feedback from Region VI members about what activities or programming you’d like to see. So please fill out our comment form at any time here https://forms.gle/Ta4b5RBUPnwAzUgW7.
