In June 2018, ESD 112 formed this committee with a mission of equity, inclusion and diversity excellence at the ESD and in our community. We are composed of 13 staff members from a variety of departments across the ESD.
We’ve met monthly over the past year, and in December 2018 we had a full day retreat led by our Camas School District consulting team. At the retreat we worked on team building, gaining broader information on equity, inclusion and diversity work and developed a plan for moving this work forward at the ESD.
Here’s some of what we’ve been working on so far:
- Developed a working mission statement
- Considered a policy review of ESD gender language
- Began work on Stages of Multicultural Organization Development to help determine where we are as an organization and how to move our work forward
- Are in the process of developing informal groups, such as book/movie studies
We would love to hear from you about what you find here or anything else equity-related. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
