With an increased focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), associations are identifying ways to infuse it in their initiatives. You see it in association strategic planning or attracting candidate for volunteer leadership. One area that’s not always top of mind is DEI and government relations. Often, associations pursue legislation that may impact their members’ ability to make a living. But what does advocacy look like through a DEI lens? This session will help attendees the many ways DEI can and should be seen in their government relations work.

This online seminar features facilitated audio content and conversations. Soon after registering, attendees will receive login information from Zoom. Participants will have access to the recorded session, reference materials, and more for up to 30 days following the program.
