DEI Task Force -- Volunteers Needed
DEI Task Force – Volunteers Needed!
The Triangle Apartment Association (TAA) is forming a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Task Force. The primary goals will be to:
- create and execute a survey to the membership to assess its DEI capacity and bandwidth;
- and, based on the survey results, provide recommendations to the TAA Board of Directors on steps to move forward its DEI initiative, which is part of TAA’s Strategic Plan to:
- create environments where people can excel and advance as their authentic selves, and
- improve business outcomes by being more representative of demographics and by bringing together more variety in ways of thinking to better solve complex issues.
The Task Force aims to be inclusive of race and ethnicity, yet also of gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, culture, generation, veteran status, tenure, and role, among other characteristics. In whole, a collaboration of a diverse group of TAA members whose goal is to work together for the greater good of the organization and industry. The group will meet monthly from April – October 2021 to do its work.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 5 at 5pm. The Task Force members will be announced on March 19.
