Charter – An in depth review/discussion of the charter was tabled, as we did not have the most recent version of the charter. However, there was a discussion about what would be considered “in scope” and “out of scope.” The agreement by the members was to send out the most recent version of the charter and for each member to make their revisions and send them to Terri Woltmon (SMUD) by April 13, allowing for time to coordinate the revisions into the categories/themes, to be discussed and agreed upon by all attendees at the April 20th meeting. The goal is to finalize the charter at the April meeting.
Membership & By-laws – Regina Luster mentioned that she had a template that could be used to develop the parameters of the council membership and by-laws. A sub-committee (David Davis (L); Kellie Willey; Regina Luster: Tammy McNiff) was formed to discuss the membership and by-laws and bring a draft to the attendees of the April meeting. Regina agreed to send the template to the members of the committee, who will meeting prior to the April meeting to develop the draft.
2013 Inclusion Conference – Great discussion about the concept of the proposed 2013 Inclusion and Diversity Conference. All members agreed that we should host another conference. A sub-committee (Marcella (L); Robert Cathey; Regina Luster; Rebecca Mangano; Patricia Arnold; Suzanne Silva) was formed to discuss possible components of the conference, which will be discussed at the April meeting.
One component all members agreed should be included is a repeat of the “speed dating” round table discussions. Another sub-committee (Kellie Willey (L); Johanna Stearns; Mary Lee Miglino; Ed ward Smith) was formed to brainstorm ideas to share at the April meeting. Also, members wanted to see breakout session concurrently run, which highlighted real stories of inclusion and diversity shared by speakers.
World Day of Diversity & Inclusion (May 21) – Robert Cathey shared information about the international celebration of World Day of Diversity & Inclusion and also sent out an e-mail following the meeting to provide more details.
