Building Equitable Spaces: The Dual Responsibilities of Affinity Hub Leads

In pursuit of enhanced stakeholder representation, 12 Affinity Hub Leads champion various thematic areas while focusing on empowering underrepresented subgroups. These Leads play a pivotal role by convening and facilitating discussions, responding to data analysis, sharing valuable insights with other tables, and providing resources for community participation. Additionally, they actively gather feedback and facilitate effective communication channels between stakeholders and the Steering Committee.

Functioning within the Steering Committee, Affinity Hub Leads hold a dual responsibility in enhancing representation and community engagement. Through their endeavors, they empower underrepresented groups, enabling their influential involvement in decision-making processes.
