The WBCA Diversity & Inclusion Committee was formed to advise and guide the association’s Board of Directors in enhancing awareness of issues pertaining to diversity and inclusion within the WBCA membership and promoting the growth of diversity within the sport.

“We are excited to announce the formation of this committee that so perfectly represents the beautiful tapestry that is our increasingly diverse membership,” said WBCA Executive Director Danielle M. Donehew. “We were overwhelmed with members expressing interest in serving on this committee, which indicates just how important inclusiveness is to our coaches and our sport."
