Programs > Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee


The Committee’s focus and desire is to recognize all differences by having an association that is encouraging and welcoming for all, and to embolden our membership and affiliates to embrace differences as strengths.


The mission of the WIAA is to provide excellent, fair, safe and accessible activities. We cannot serve our mission if the access is not truly equitable.

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee will meet for the sole purpose of providing tangible action to support our membership, with emphasis on student equity, eliminating barriers for participation and providing more seats at the table.

We will facilitate uncomfortable yet critical conversations about inequality, injustice, and our own biases with the WIAA Executive Board, WIAA Staff and WIAA Membership.
