Leadership Development In Depth

July 15-19, 2019 is National Disability Voter Registration Week. We spoke to Leagues from all over the country about the steps they are taking to empower individuals with disabilities and to create a more accessible and fair democracy for the larger communities the League serves.

Barb Clark is the Executive for Business (part of their League’s core leadership team) of the LWV of Greater Lafayette in Indiana. She shared actions taken at their board’s leadership transition meeting last year to help them identify how their League could move forward with diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) work.

Veda Florez is the Communications Director of the LWV of the Bay Area in California. Twenty local Leagues across nine counties in the Bay Area make up this ILO. During an LWV-sponsored webinar , Veda shared three actions the League has taken as part of their diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) work.

This document serves as a guide of the services LWVUS provides for local and state Leagues and demonstrates the work LWVUS does at the national level.

A good orientation informs board members about the League, acquaints them with one another, and builds a sense of total board responsibility. 

You can run your League with a streamlined management structure.

LWV is hosting a series of DEI webinars throughout 2018-2019. This page includes a recording of those webinars and other resources.
