Diversity & Inclusion Group (DIG) Update
Our chapter’s first virtual book club series this spring was a success! Thank you to everyone who participated in this four-part series. We appreciated your insights surrounding Dare to Lead by Brené Brown, as well as your post-series survey feedback!
We are excited to announce the arrival of another virtual book club series this fall. Our next reading selection is Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth. In this instant New York Times bestseller, Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit”. It is inspiration for non-geniuses everywhere. The book is currently available for purchase in several formats on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, and Audible. The format will be similar to our spring book club. We’ll read the book in 4 or 5 sections, discuss each virtually over the lunch hour, and receive 1 hour of CPE per session.
New to DIG this Fall: we’ll kickoff the group discussion by meeting
in person for additional networking over breakfast. Please save the following dates
on your calendars:

We’re excited to begin a new fiscal year with you! Like most not-for-profit organizations, FY20-21 was challenging from a membership perspective, for both the chapter and FEI as a whole due to the ongoing impact of the pandemic. The fiscal year ended on June 30, 2021, and our chapter had a total of 208 members. We began the year with 256 members. Throughout the year, 15 new members were recruited, plus an additional 17 reinstatements. These efforts were offset by 80 terminations. Almost all chapters were faced with similar challenges and ended the fiscal year with little to no growth. Currently, our chapter is ranked as the 6th largest out of 65 chapters in the country.
