Equity & Inclusion Committee Nomination Form - 2022

Join Our Equity & Inclusion Committee

Since 2018, our Equity & Inclusion Committee has been overseeing our work to create a Mountaineers community where everyone feels belonging. We are currently seeking 2-3 volunteers to join our Equity & Inclusion Committee to continue supporting our work.

We are looking for committee members who are actively involved in the organization, as much of our work is focused on internal Mountaineers processes. Given the complexity of the organization, it’s helpful if you are already a volunteer on a Mountaineers committee. It's also helpful if you have a strong perspective on process and leadership gaps within The Mountaineers (and want to help fix them) and/or have previous experience in DE&I work and/or leading organizational change. However none of this is a requirement. 

We ask all candidates to share their identities so that we can be intentional about representation and intersectionality on the committee. We seek to represent as many identities as possible, while recognizing that no one person can speak for a group of individuals. Candidates will also be evaluated by current committee members based on a personal statement outlining their interest and commitment to this work and on their relevant lived, professional, and volunteer experience.

Applications are open until Dec 31, 2022, and will be reviewed in December. Final candidates will be contacted in early January 2023 for a conversation, then invited to join our February or March 2023 meeting.

Thank you in advance for your work to complete this application.
