Call for Volunteers: Diversity and Inclusiveness Committee

posted in: Announcements | 1

Dear Babywearing Community,

We hear you. Here at Babywearing International, we seek to make safe and comfortable babywearing accessible to all. You’ve told us we can improve, and we know with your help and feedback, we can take more steps to achieve our goals.

We are pleased to announce the creation of a new advisory committee within BWI: the Diversity and Inclusiveness Committee. This committee will be comprised of volunteers from within Babywearing International as well as outside experts.

This committee will be tasked with some tall orders, which include:

-Developing educational materials on inclusiveness for Chapter Volunteers. These materials will be targeted toward educators and chapter leaders.

-Analyzing diversity and inclusiveness within BWI’s organizational structure and providing feedback for improvement.

-Strategizing ways for BWI to provide support and outreach to diverse and underrepresented populations.

Babywearing International has experienced tremendous growth since its inception, growth that can be measured in our numbers and in our impact. Help us continue to grow, learn, and evolve. Help us to lead by example in the babywearing community.


If you or someone you know is a good fit for this committee, please submit a letter of interest to by March 1, 2015.
