Diversity Roundtable Willingness to Serve

The Diversity Roundtable [DRT] grew from the Vision 2020 Plan for the Future, created by the Lafayette/West Lafayette community in 2001. The DRT’s vision is “A Community that Values Diversity.” To achieve this vision, three arenas have been identified for priority action: Leadership, Education, and Awareness.

In an effort to expand and diversify the pool of emerging community leaders, the Leadership committee of the DRT has created a “willingness to serve database” of individuals interested in serving their community as appointed members of non-profit boards, government commissions, and other community leadership positions. Organizations only work through the involvement of people, and we want to assure that all people have opportunities to lead in Tippecanoe County.

To be included in the database, please complete the survey below. The information will be available for board and commissions as vacancies open. You will receive a follow-up letter from the Diversity Roundtable informing you of receipt of the form as well as further information. Thank you for your willingness to serve your community.
