For those attending the meeting in Buffalo this week, please be sure to attend the Town Hall to discuss the recommendations of the Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion this Friday at 10:00 am, immediately following the plenary. As described in the program:
MARAC has made becoming a more diverse and inclusive organization a priority. To that end, the Task Force on Diversity & Inclusion was charged to provide a report defining these terms as they apply to our organization, and to make recommendations to improve efforts in the future. Attend the Town Hall to discuss your impressions of these recommendations and offer constructive feedback for the benefit of all MARAC members. This is a great chance for your voice to be heard by the MARAC leadership. MARAC Chair Vin Novara, immediate Past-Chair Brian Keough, Chair-Elect Becky Collier, and other MARAC Steering Committee Members will discuss the process and the proposed recommendations.
You can find the report to review at this page: https://marac.memberclicks.net/marac-task-force-diversity
For those of you not attending the conference, the Town Hall will be live-streamed from MARAC’s Facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/groups/7834911567/
Thank you for your engagement in this important topic and for helping MARAC move in a better direction towards supporting diversity and inclusion.
