Upcoming LWVUS Webinars on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: The upcoming webinar series will take a deeper look at the topics we’ve been exploring for the past year and offer tools every member can use in their League work. Ideally, Leagues would watch together and make time for discussion afterward. See the dates and links to register below.

Increasing our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is a central goal for LWV. Every LWV member has access to the webinars that LWVUS has produced in the past and will produce in the future on this theme. Recordings and resources from previous webinars can be found on the League Management SiteYou can register individually at the links here
