Join the new Diversity Committee

The NASIG Board has voted to establish a new Diversity Committee, with Del Williams (California State University, Northridge) as the first chair. NASIG is now seeking candidates to join the committee for a term of two years, beginning immediately.

To apply, send an email by Aug. 3 to kristen_wilson@ncsu.edu. Your email should include a short description of your interest in the committee and any specific qualifications or experience you have working with diversity initiatives and related areas. Prior experience is not required.

The committee’s initial assignment will be to define its work. Specifically, committee members will have the following initial charge:

  • Recommend a permanent committee name, develop a final committee charge, and establish a guiding document for the work of the committee.
  • Develop strategies to increase diversity in NASIG membership, leadership, and award winners.
  • Collaborate with the Continuing Education Committee to Initiate and promote educational opportunities that address issues in diversity and social justice.

If you have questions, contact Kristen Wilson.
