DRIVE: Diversity, Representation, Inclusivity, Vision, Equity

DRIVE Committee

DRIVE is a committee open to any member of the Massachusetts Breastfeeding Coalition.

We are a small group of passionate people who are focused on increasing diversity in the lactation landscape.

We meet one evening a month for two hours via Zoom and we’d love more like-minded Coalition members to join our efforts so that we can learn and grow together while improving representation in the lactation field!

We’d love for you to join us! If you’re intrigued and want to help, please join us at one of our monthly meetings. We are always open to more hands, new ideas, creative social media plans, and would especially welcome those with skills in graphic design, public outreach, grant writing, and/or anything else that you may have to offer and/or share.

DRIVE meets on the first Wednesday of every month, from 6-8pm. Join us!
