FIRST Washington’s DEI Workshops Fall 2019! 

FIRST Washington’s commitment to equity and access, we are pleased to partner with one of our FIRST Robotics Competition teams to host a half day workshop for all coaches, mentors and volunteers. We have a professional DEI facilitator, Tareena Joubert joining us for this day.


The goal of this workshop is to support our communities, coaches and mentors in welcoming all students. Part of the success in recruiting students is broadening our base of coaches/mentors and volunteers who look like students. Helping FIRST broaden our base of adults to include more women, persons of color, diverse professional backgrounds will help us position FIRST programs as inclusive and welcoming to all. Please join this workshop by signing up today to learn some tips and tools on how you can assist!


Saturday, November 16th, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Environmental Learning Center, Point Defiance. Thank you SotaBots, FRC team 2557 for hosting! RSVP here

At FIRST Washington we recognize that our staff, coaches, mentors, volunteers, and students all bring unique experiences and perspectives, which cultivate an environment built for innovation. We assure that FIRST Washington will always uphold and encourage these fundamental beliefs in order to sustain excellence.
