DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
LWV Makes a Commitment to DEI
The League of Women Voters is an organization fully committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in principle and in practice. Diversity, equity and inclusion are central to the organization’s current and future success in engaging all individuals, households, communities and policymakers in creating a more perfect democracy.
We will actively work to remove barriers to full participation in this organization regardless of gender, gender identity, ethnicity, race, native or indigenous origin, age, generation, sexual orientation, culture, religion, belief system, marital status, parental status, socioeconomic status, language, accent, ability status, mental health, educational level or background, geography, nationality, work style, work experience, job role function, thinking style, personality type, physical appearance, political perspective or affiliation, and/or any other characteristic that can be identified as recognizing or illustrating diversity.
Equity and Policy in Nebraska is Topic of OpenSky Institute Series
As we strive to meet our commitment to DEI, we are linking to this Open Sky Institute series that investigates the state of equity in Nebraska. The first webinar in the series (posted to the right) features a discussion of the current state of race and ethnic equity in Nebraska regarding K-12 education, health care, housing and corrections.
Future webinars (which we will post) include:
Oct. 14 — A look at historic policy choices and their ongoing impact on racial and ethnic equality.
Oct. 21 — A discussion about the importance of taking steps to increase racial and ethnic equality in Nebraska.
Oct. 28 — A conversation about policies leaders can enact to create a more inclusive Nebraska.
