The DEBI Council

QUESTIONS? SUGGESTIONS? WE'RE HERE TO HELP.

Please feel free to reach out to Chair Page Knudsen Cowles or Vice Chair Michelle Wasner with your questions. Whether you're interested in getting involved with the committee or just want a little direction about how to get started, we're here to help.

Interested in helping to further DEBI causes in the Willamette Valley?
The DEBI Council has several committees that could use your help. If you have specific interests or talents you would like to contribute, please reply with your specifics.

In 2019 the WVWA formed a Diversity, Equity, Belonging and Inclusion (DEBI) task force with the stated goal to advocate for belonging through the creation of diverse, inclusive, and equitable opportunities for our members, trade, and consumer audiences. As this is ongoing work, the DEBI task force is now the DEBI Council and a permanent part of the WVWA committee structure.
