Diversity Committee

Responsible for developing the strategies and activities that foster a Village membership as racially, culturally, economically and ethnically diverse as the neighborhood itself. The Committee believes that without a directed and continuous commitment to diversity and inclusion, significant growth will not occur. The Committee defines diversity to include race, ethnicity, cultural background, economic status, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

The Committee explicitly works on bringing programs on racial justice and equity to the larger Village.
