AA Tri Club - Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Like so many of you, we, as the Board of Directors of the Ann Arbor Triathlon Club, are distressed and heartbroken at the racism faced by black members of our community and all over the US.  In supporting the fight for racial justice, we recognize the lack of diversity in our sport and know that we can be a part of creating and fostering a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment both within our club and in our community.  Racism and discrimination of any kind have no place in our club and we stand with USA Triathlon in our commitment to promoting a culture of equality.

As a step toward bringing more equity, inclusion, and diversity into our sport, we have formed the Ann Arbor Triathlon Club Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee. This committee is comprised of fellow local athletes in the Ann Arbor community. Get to know them below!

 Keerthi Gondy Davita Burkhead-Weiner Audrey WuBrian Urbancic 


 Bonnie Ohye Juan Jose Joachin Kallisse Dent Kimberly Vaughn


 Laurie Svoboda Kim Wehrmeister Bob Headley Erin Pons



Moving forward, we would like to begin to work together to promote diversity and inclusion in our sport and in our community.  Please reply directly to davita@aatriclub.org if you would like to be involved in this discussion with the goal of forming a more permanent diversity and inclusion committee.  You can also contact USAT at diversity@usatriathlon.org.
