The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville has announced the creation of the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Diversity & Inclusion.
Residents are encouraged to participate to ensure the committee is established with representation that truly reflects the vibrant community.
“As our town continues to grow and diversify, ensuring that the voices of all residents are being heard is of paramount importance, Stouffville Mayor Iain Lovatt says. “The purpose of this committee is to help the town analyze decisions, programs and services through a lens of diversity; making recommendations that promote inclusivity and equity.”
The Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Diversity & Inclusion will provide consultation and advice on town programs and initiatives as necessary on matters related to diversity, inclusivity and equity. The group will also provide support in the development, maintenance and refinement of the town’s Diversity & Inclusion Strategy, slated for release in 2021.
Interested committee participants are asked to contact the Office of the Mayor by email at [email protected] to receive an application form. The first meeting of the committee will take place later this summer.
