The Empowerment Team is a peer network created of leadership members and dancers who are the voice of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion within their respective committees. Their responsibilities of the year will be a monthly 1-hour meeting where they will participate in an educational/conversation which is versed around DEI initiatives. Using what they learn in meetings, they will then bring this knowledge into their committees, challenge biases, and ensure that UIDM will push towards being an inclusive community. Being a part of the Empowerment Team, members will gain knowledge on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives in and outside of our organization, active citizenship, social identities/values, and the privileges they hold/do not hold.
