NAGT Advocating for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)
NAGT DEI Committee
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee facilitates the organization's efforts to build an inclusive and equitable organization, and achieve its goals related to diversity of its membership, leadership, committees, award winners, and participants in all events. Members of the committee provide expertise and guidance to NAGT. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee reports to the Executive Committee.
The DEI Committee's Guiding Principles:
- Establish metrics for and assess progress towards diversity goals
- Recommend and work to implement activities to promote and increase membership of groups that are currently underrepresented in NAGT
- Recommend activities to increase and support participation of underrepresented groups in NAGT programming
- Recommend and work to implement strategies to broaden nominations for awards, committee positions, and leadership opportunities
