More than ever, local government professionals are called upon to integrate public service with equitable response to a rapidly diversifying community. Local governments are charged with meeting the needs of the whole community and must weigh priorities and deliver services to all residents. Equity and inclusivity go beyond race and gender. Factors that contribute to a diverse community profile include variations in age, economic status, educational attainment, immigration levels, and community size.

What You Can Expect

This dynamic panel discussion, Equity and Inclusivity in the Workplace and Our Communities, moderated by ICMA President Lee Feldman, will feature examples from local governments that are successfully addressing inclusiveness and diversity in their organizations and ensuring equitable service delivery in their communities. The session begins at 10 a.m. and will be followed by a networking lunch.
