Global Issues

The purpose of the Global Issues Committee is to enhance the inclusivity of its membership to reflect the demographic of the student population we serve. In addition to increasing diverse membership and participation, the Committee will also be responsible for engaging members in thoughtful interactions regarding inclusivity, informing the general membership of the concerns and issues of diverse members, and ensuring diverse representation on the various FASFAA committees and offices.

FASFAA Diversity Statement

We acknowledge the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals and are committed to creating and maintaining an environment that is inclusive and respects diversity. We will continue to do our utmost to be an organization that is represented by individuals from a variety of ethnicities, cultures, backgrounds, and experiences.

As part of our continuing mission to be an all-inclusive association, FASFAA is committed to providing a diverse program to our membership. We will also be posting selected books and providing webinars and conference sessions devoted to the topic.

In honor of Women's History Month and International Women's Day (March 8th), we would like to share this year's theme: 'Choose to Challenge' and encourage you to participate in one of the following:

  • Celebrating women’s achievements
  • Raising awareness about women’s equality
  • Lobbying for accelerated gender parity
  • Fundraising for female-focused charities

This short video from spoken word poet, Anisa Nandaula, may encourage you to Choose to Challenge.

We are also highlighting schools with initiatives in place to meet diversity, inclusion, and equity goals.
