• Welcome to the New Director

    A Note from the Executive Director:

    The transition into Executive Director has been very exciting!

    Jodi Vandenberg-Daves, our previous Director, has been incredibly helpful, and accommodating through this process. I am honored to “take on the torch”, as I take on these, her own words, and her commitment to the Diversity Council.

    My goal as the New Executive Director is to bring knowledge, and motivate the people of La Crosse, and surrounding areas about strategies in becoming a welcoming community where inclusion, and diversity are important assets that are understood, so that it will allow the community at large to thrive in every aspect that is needed.

    I have lived and developed my professional life in the Midwest of the United States, the East Coast, and the West Coast during the last twenty years. I have had the opportunity to learn about each region, its people, the economy, and their ways of life. I returned to La Crosse in June of 2014.

    My passion is in serving others, creating unity, developing new projects and connections that have meaning, and value to our area businesses, local agencies, and governmental agencies.

    I have worked with a broad range of individuals throughout my career. I am honored to bring an exciting work plan for the year ahead in the Greater La Crosse Area.

    Thanks to all of you for your support to the Diversity Council!

    We hope to see you at our 2018 Annual Conference on November 1st.

    Yours sincerely,
    Arlette Rodriguez-Miller
