The Diversity and Inclusion Committee began in 2017 to help create a culture of inclusion and opportunity in USMS for people of diverse backgrounds by developing resources and engaging coaches, LMSCs, and local volunteers. Its members have a passion for and experience in creating an inclusive culture and encouraging diversity in their lives.

The committee reached out to clubs and coaches for best practices on how to increase diversity and inclusion.
