Diversity and Inclusion Committee

In March of 2019, the ILCMA Board established an ad hoc task force on Diversity Equity and Inclusion with the goal of identifying and reducing barriers to the participation of minorities, women and other underrepresented groups in the profession of local government management and the ILCMA.  ILCMA’s Diversity and Inclusion standing committee was formally created in early 2021.

The Committee’s goals include:

  • Educate association members on DEI through implicit/explicit/microaggression training using several different platforms.
  • Impress the need of the association to build relationships with affinity groups established in the work of DEI.
  • Develop tools, programs and techniques for member organizations to use to help them reach their DEI goals, including but not limited to a recruitment tool kit of best practices for hiring for diversity, and DEI training as a part of organizational objectives and strategic planning initiatives.
