The city continues to work on advancing the city council’s strategic priority of being a leader in racial equity and inclusion in order to create a more just and inclusive community for all. In order to do so, the city is working to:

  • Create pipelines and opportunities for communities of color and indigenous people to be part of city leadership roles.
  • Invest in small business and services owned by people of color and indigenous people.
  • Expand racial equity as an ongoing discussion within all areas of city business.
  • Build awareness and a learning environment where consequences and unintentional impact of our work and decisions are addressed.

Work with advancing racial equity is a journey that will continue as part of the city's regular business and service delivery. The city council is also working with the human rights commission, multicultural advisory committee and other groups on ideas and direction for continued outreach in advancement of racial equity.
