In November 2021, the PSGA board created a plan to pursue our goal to reshape PSGA as a more equitable and just association. The board identified four objectives:
Objective 1: Recruit racially diverse leadership to share decision-making and power in the community.
Objective 2: Formalize an outreach practice that develops allies to share resources.
Objective 3: Align existing programming to topics relevant to racial equity and justice work happening in the Puget Sound and beyond.
Objective 4: Develop policies and practices that advance accessibility of PSGA resources – programs, network, and knowledge.
The board of PSGA has committed to a journey of improving equity within the association and community at large. We would like to share a few resources that may be helpful in your own journey. If you are interested in contributing to our efforts, have questions or suggestions for additional resources, please contact us.
