NOTES FROM THE 3/10/2020 BOARD MEETING
The LWVCO Board of Directors met virtually on March 10th, 2021. The meeting began with an icebreaker led by LWVCO’s DEI Committee. The Board gathered in four-member virtual breakout rooms to discuss how the proposed Inclusion & Nondiscrimination Policy reflected LWVCO’s new approach to DEI. In summary, the Board appreciated how the policy held LWVCO accountable, addressed multiple components of DEI, and optimistically presented DEI as component of success rather than as a challenge to overcome. Following the icebreaker activity, the meeting was spent discussing LWVCO’s bylaws, the proposed FY 2021/2022 budget, and miscellaneous announcements. Directors’ reports, financials, and Jan. 13th meeting minutes were all reviewed and approved in the consent agenda. READ MORE...
