Equity Officers in Local Government

When:  Dec 17, 2021 from 12:30 PM to 02:00 PM (ET)
[Free Event]

Organizations are increasingly hiring equity officers, some into established departments with budgets and staff, and others into new-to-the-organization-chart roles. Whether an equity officer is well-versed or new to the work, many continue to experience resistance and limited support for their roles.

Join us for a panel discussion with members of ICMA’s Equity Officer Institute on the challenges and successes of leading transformative equity and inclusion work in local government.
