Our Commitment to Diversity

We strive to have a diversity of thought, perspective, and experience on our board to best serve our fellows. For that reason, we commit to having at least 50% of our board and committee members self-identify as a member of an underrepresented community (or communities). 

Leaders of Today and Tomorrow values diversity in all its forms. The “all” includes and is not limited to people of every racial, ethnic, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, economic, education, immigration, and disability status. We are committed to inclusion and strive to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all. This is made possible through partnership, training, and clear expectations between board members, committee members, mentors, and workshop facilitators, speakers, and other volunteers.

 

Leaders of Today and Tomorrow builds an environment where all women have the opportunity to participate in a program that develops their potential to lead professionally, personally, and in their communities.

 

Leaders of Today and Tomorrow is a professional development program that centers women.  We welcome applications from anyone who would like to participate in a program designed for women. 

 

We thank Girl Scouts River Valleys and Chief Officers of State Library Agencies for inspiring us to name how we cultivate our community.
