Inclusion Council members sought in Clackamas County
Clackamas County is recruiting five volunteers to sit on the Leaders for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Council.
Volunteers will serve three-year terms to help envision a county in which equity and inclusion are at the forefront of all decision-making, and in which all community members are actively engaged.
The council strives to examine county processes in order to recommend and facilitate changes that foster greater inclusiveness, develop leadership from diverse communities, increase community participation in county government, and promote and support diversity awareness and education.
Inclusion Council members are meant to be representative of the county's diverse populations. County officials hope to have representation on the council from different work experiences, educational backgrounds, religious beliefs and affiliations, geographic locations, socioeconomic statuses, ethnicities, physical abilities or other diversity. Council members meet from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. the fourth Tuesday of each month.
The deadline for applications is Aug. 24 at bitly.com/ClackCoABCs. A paper form can be obtained from the Public & Government Affairs Department by calling 503-655-8751, or apply in person at the Clackamas County Public Services Building, 2051 Kaen Road, Oregon City.
