At the November 18 meeting, the city’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Commission selected Karissa Richards as the Chair and Saboora Deen as Vice-Chair through the year 2021.
Following election of the chairs, the Commission reviewed a draft public comment policy for regular meetings. Some minor revisions were requested, and the Commission will consider an amended policy at their December 16 meeting for approval. The Commission also discussed additional ways the get community input through events and written comment.
The Commission wrapped up their meeting with a brainstorming session on ideas to include in a workplan, such as education and recognition of the community’s diversity. City staff will organize the ideas for further review and discussion.
