This process was led by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee within Our Climate’s Millennial Advisory Board. The committee was made up of eight students, one board member, and one staff member, and was facilitated by the Deputy Director. The Committee surveyed all staff, board, and over 50 student alumni on their experiences with Our Climate, wrote and edited multiple drafts of the plan with feedback from our staff and board, and solicited feedback from a DEI consultant before our board approved the final plan in September 2019.
This plan is written around three overarching commitments:
- Diversity in Organizational Leadership
- Equitable and Inclusive Organizing Practices
- Equitable and Inclusive Access to Our Climate’s Programs
