Affinity Group Calls
As many of you may know, Diversity and Inclusion are a priority for the EBC.
To that end, we are exploring the possibility of creating Affinity Groups.
Affinity Groups are identity-specific groups. It can be extremely helpful to have identity-specific spaces for folks to talk, share concerns and support each other – with the goal of assisting with broader inclusion efforts.
The intention of these Affinity Groups is three-fold:
- To provide support.
- To provide a safer space for conversation or a space for deeper conversation.
- To serve as an incubator for professional development for the EBC – to help strengthen their diversity and inclusion efforts
These calls are for EBC & EBI members who are either:
- EBC Español (for our Spanish Speaking Members)
- EBC – LGBTQ
- EBC – People of Colour
