DFWAE Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

People feel a sense of belonging when differences are embraced and valued. DFWAE is dedicated to nurturing equality by creating spaces for the voices least heard, providing educational opportunities to grow leaders, instilling a greater understanding of diverse and equitable environments; and expanding opportunities to collaborate with one another to ensure DFWAE is reflective of the larger, richer community of association voices. We recognize there is still work to be done and commit to cultivating an atmosphere and culture that is inclusive for all.
