As part of its ongoing Leadership role, the AIA is hosting a series of diversity training sessions and launching a training video for state high school coaches and game officials. While coaches and game officials are not employees of the AIA, the organization feels a responsibility to offer this type of training to ensure that role models understand and are sensitive to the need for inclusion and fair treatment to all players, fellow officials, parents and fans.

The first session is scheduled on January 13, 2013 at the Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort in Flagstaff and will be led by Diversity Trainer and Coach, Don Logan. He will introduce the concept of cross cultural dialogue.

“We are pleased to have Don Logan, a respected diversity thought leader facilitate this on our behalf. Our goal is to ensure that anyone participating in AIA events be a fine example for our student participants in the areas of diversity,” says Chuck Schmidt, Associate Executive Director.

The event is open to public. For information or registration contact, Chuck Schmidt at cschmidt(at)aiaonline(dot)org or Michele Staples at mstaples(at)aiaonline(dot)org.
