Affirmations and it’s Multicultural Advisory Committee will host a public event to formally release “A Blueprint for Change,” the final report from its more than four years of work in racial inclusion.
The Multicultural Advisory Committee was established in 2008 to address systemic racial inequities and to develop best practices for racial and ethnic inclusion at Affirmations. The committee will present copies of the finished report, along with a presentation detailing the history of the project, the model followed, a summary of recommendations, and plans for follow-up. Led by long-serving members of the committee, the presentation will be followed by a presentation from Affirmations’ leadership on its 2012-2015 Strategic Plan to take the organization forward.
“We’re very excited about providing Affirmations with a research-based, and solid set of recommendations for best practices on racial inclusion,” says former Affirmations’ staff member Kathleen LaTosch, who facilitated the initiative. “The Blueprint for Change provides a clear set of directives and creative suggestions for board development, staff enhancement, and program effectiveness.”
The event begins at 7 p.m. Oct. 25. For more information go to
