Diversity and inclusion are very important for WE WILL.
WE WILL often visit Springfield, phone bank, and have events to work with our legislators on various levels to encourage, demand and legislate to create and harness diversity in our communities.
WE WILL worked diligently in 2019 to help women and people of color be seen and have seats on publicly traded companies boards. We testified in senate hearings, brought members while the bill was called in the house, and will continue fighting for opportunity for everyone to serve, be heard an rise. WE WILL worked on anti-bias training efforts and will continue to advocate for training and especially in hospital settings.
This year, board member, Erika Walker, has written a bill to broaden diversity training. This bill is being sponsored by Representative Lamont Robinson and Representative Chris Welch. We look forward to working on this important legislation and updating you on how to engage.
