ATLIS Seeks Volunteers for DEI Advisory Committee

Association's newly created Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advisory Committee launched to support strategic goals

 The Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools (ATLIS), the only professional association for independent school technology directors, announces the open call for volunteers to serve on its newly established Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Committee. 

The DEI Advisory Committee's charter states: "The mission of the DEI Advisory Committee is to support ATLIS as it strives to be an organization where all individuals and independent school communities join together to support one another and work together to deliver the best educational environment possible for today’s learners."

With the October 22 adoption of the charter by the ATLIS Board of Directors, the DEI Advisory Committee becomes a standing committee at ATLIS. Meetings will be held as needed, generally once per month as virtual gatherings. The DEI Advisory Committee shall consist of ATLIS membership representatives, staff, and other people who have the expertise and are willing to volunteer the necessary time and effort to contribute.

“Several months ago, ATLIS made a commitment to prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives to support technology leaders, our schools, and the broader independent school community,” said Dawn Klus, ATLIS Board Chair. “We're looking for thoughtful, engaged contributors to participate in the Advisory Committee's important work in this realm. The DEI Advisory Committee will play a critical role in helping ATLIS reach the goals related to DEI in its strategic plan, and we look forward to welcoming more perspectives and voices with this volunteer opportunity.”

Those who are interested in being considered for the DEI Advisory Committee should take some time to review the committee's charter and then complete this brief intake questionnaire. Those appointed to the committee will be contacted in the coming weeks.
