This webinar is devoted to helping build a diverse, inclusive, equitable food system network and a discussion of the process of crafting a diversity/equity/inclusion statement of our values. This is an opportunity for an inward looking discussion to improve NAFSN's practices. The webinar will begin by Cory Whiteley's study highlighting the efforts of other food systems networks, such as the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC), Food Systems New England (FSNE), and the Inter-Institutional Network for Food, Agriculture and Sustainability (INFAS). The purpose of his project was to explore various organizational visions, structures, processes, culture and leadership strategies employed by networks seeking to advance informed social equity agendas within food system organizations, identify strategies that have worked, and what strategies may be transferrable to the NAFSN. He will be followed by Shorlette Ammons' presentation of examples of the approach used by the Committee of Racial Equity (CORE) of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) in North Carolina. Finally, Kyjana Barnett will open the discussion of now NAFSN can craft its statement on diversity, equity and inclusion in the food system.
