It is a great pleasure to announce that on March 15th, 2017, Jameil Weldon will step into the role of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Administrator (EDIA) for La Leche League Alliance.

I am thrilled to accept the position of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Administrator for LLL Alliance. I have a three-year-old son and another child on the way. I currently lead with LLL of Ballantyne in Charlotte, NC. I am also a member of the LLL USA Social Media Team. As a member of the LLL USA Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, I help craft and guide the Committee’s initiatives. I look forward to assisting with the expansion of the Equity Advocate program and spearheading greater implementation of the ideals of equity, diversity and inclusion in our Area Network. I believe identifying barriers to access in each Area of Alliance will be one of the most crucial tasks in ensuring we get closer to our goal of reaching a wider range of families. I look forward to your help in making human milk more accessible for ALLL.

Please join us in welcoming Jameil, and wishing her the best in her new position.

Diane Thompson LLL Alliance Director
