Employer's Approach to Diversity, Equity, & Belonging

The CCRPC is committed to building its capacity to address systemic racism and inequities in all facets of its work. In 2021, a racial equity consultant (The Creative Discourse Group) was hired, and one of their tasks was to provide an organizational assessment, which yielded a number of recommendations. The CCRPC is in the process of forming an inclusive Equity Advisory Committee to address and prioritize these recommendations, as well as to support the person in this position.
