Last month the Eastern Zone hosted it's 2nd Eastern Zone Diversity Summit in Boston, MA. The Eastern Zone Diversity Summit and Camp invited diversity athletes, coaches, and staff from the Eastern Zone to be apart of this wonderful event. We had representation from 11 of the 12 LSCs that make up the Eastern Zone! Thank you to those LSCs who could participate.
The goal of the summit/camp was to mirror USA Swimming's Diversity and Inclusion mission, "To assist USA Swimming in creating a culture of inclusion and opportunity for people of diverse backgrounds, including, but not limited to, race, age, income, ethnicity, religion, gender, and sexual orientation" (www.usaswimming.org). Please take the time to read the report about the summit, the goals set by the LSCs in attendance and watch a video made by an athlete of New England Swimming's Inclusion Committee. We are excited for the impact the event has made and already planning for the 2015 EZ Diversity Camp! A special thank you goes out to New England Swimming and Nadine Johnson-Jesionek for helping to put on a great event for all.
