FWSF Diversity & Inclusion

Welcome (or welcome back!) to the FWSF Diversity and Inclusivity team page. We are so happy you are taking the time to engage. 

As our 2020 President, Olivia Barbee said in her recent letter to the FWSF community, the FWSF Diversity and Inclusivity team is working to further the causes of equity, racial justice and peace within our FWSF community and beyond. We believe that all of us are called to find the role that we can play in moving our society toward reconciliation as we, as an organization and as individuals, do the work to come together, fight injustice, learn and become better allies.

Please continue to share your voice with us and submit your suggestions, questions and feedback. You can also reference the resources below to support Black-owned businesses and learn more about Equity and Leadership at upcoming events from partner organizations. 

Thank you!
Janeth Medina Larios
VP Diversity and Inclusivity
