INCLUSION, DIVERSITY & EQUITY COMMITTEE

Duties

The main goal of the Inclusion, Diversity and Equity (IDE) Committee is to assist the Atlantic Canada Water and Wastewater Association (ACWWA) in creating an inclusive, diverse, and equitable membership and to establish an organizational environment that recognizes, encourages, celebrates, and effectively utilizes each individual member’s talents.  

 

Other goals and objectives of the IDE Committee are as follows:

* Build diversity in the Board so that organizational decision making is informed by a wider range of experience and knowledge;

* Incorporate inclusion, diversity, and equity into committee action plans and support all ACWWA committees in doing the same;

* Establish an IDE session at the ACWWA Young Professional Seminar and/or Annual Conference by offering topics about IDE or nontechnical issues that may appeal to a wider audience and encourage participation by new members or attendees; and

* Submit recurring “Diversity Moments” or other IDE Committee features to each magazine publication

· Encourage diversity of visuals (e.g., pictures) in the ACWWA magazine, calendar, website, and other publications.
