Back in November, a group of League members, including myself,
joined Malia Lazu at headquarters for an open & honest discussion about diversity,
inclusion, & the true meaning of bias & how it impacts our everyday lives,

tackling them through the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force
and a series of member trainings & discussions.
