What is Your Vision for Equity in Evanston?
The City of Evanston has embarked on a new mission to more intentionally address issues of access, equity and empowerment. Diversity and inclusion are core values of the Evanston community. To achieve lasting change and better outcomes for our community, we must leverage our diversity and actively practice inclusion. In addition to being the right thing to do, it is the smart and necessary thing to do.
Equity & Empowerment Proposed Plan of Action
As the Office of Equity and Empowerment works on developing short- and long-term goals, we will continually offer opportunities for community input. This has been accomplished through town hall meetings and an equity survey. We are now gathering feedback through Friday, August 11, 2017 on the Equity & Empowerment Proposed Plan of Action.
Community members were invited to hear what "equity" means for our community and share their ideas at a City of Evanston Equity and Empowerment Town Hall meeting. Meetings were moderated by Patricia A. Efiom, the City of Evanston’s Equity and Empowerment Coordinator.
Meetings were held:
- Monday, April 17, 10:30 a.m. to noon, Morton Civic Center (Parasol Room), 2100 Ridge Ave.
