While the DEIA committee work has proved valuable to start important conversations, we feel this work should be incorporated into the core of the SNA organization. We want to grow as a community and apply best practices to ensure everyone feels they have space and access to contribute towards the organization. Therefore, we are disbanding the DEIA.
One of the first initiatives we’ll look to build as a group is a Culture Statement for the Sunnyside neighborhood. While we understand the DEIA work is a continual process, the group wants to ensure this is a collective commitment by our neighborhood. If you have ideas on how to incorporate DEIA practices into the General meetings please reach out to [email protected] to start the conversation.
