DEI + Belonging

Leadership Long Beach’s Diversity Equity Inclusion +Belonging Statement

There is Power in Our Differences.

The vision of Leadership Long Beach cannot be fully realized unless it is approached with diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging as our foundation. To connect and meaningfully serve Long Beach, we must acknowledge inequities and create opportunities for future leaders to thrive, belong, and create systemic change.

Change is hard.                    It takes courage.

Trust the process.


Implementation of DEIB

While diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) has always been an important part of Leadership Long Beach (LLB), it has not been directly reflected in our mission, vision, and principles. As such, we are looking to our alumni, stakeholders, and community members to lend their voices as we work to revise our mission, vision, and principles to more directly express the commitment of LLB to DEIB foundational principles.

Community Input

We are currently seeking a diverse group of community members and stakeholders to help us update our organization’s  Mission, Vision, and Principles to reflect our commitment to DEIB.
