Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee
Chair: Izzi Bikun, Secretary: Izzi Bikun
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee (DEI) was reformed (previously the Womxn's Committee*) to acknowledge our efforts to address race, gender, and socioeconomic status, and the intersections of these identities, in order to provide equitable opportunities and experiences for everyone in our area.
*The "x" is used to be inclusive of non-binary and trans players as well as cisgender womxn. Check out this article for more info on that spelling shift.

The CUPA Club Team Committee is focused on the following goals for area club ultimate players:
- Improve VISIBILITY & IMAGE for teams in the community
