Thank you for all you do!

This month, the GSWNY Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee is celebrating Pride! Throughout June, we’ll share more about the history of Pride, as well as highlights from LGBTQ+ representation in pop culture, highlights of community members, tips for allies, as well as local resources.


Please take our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Survey

As we continue to take action to make GSWNY a more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and antiracist council, we want to hear from our members so we can make the world a better place together. This survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete, and you are free to respond in as much or as little depth as you like. Please note that your responses will remain anonymous and confidential.


You are invited to a virtual Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Town Hall

Thursday, June 10, 2021 | 6:30 PM

Please join to share your feedback and hear from others on how GSWNY can better create a safe space for all members that is welcoming and inclusive.

Please register in advance for this meeting.
