Leading By Example

Our Equity in Employment efforts at the city are getting some national attention.

A recent article in PolicyLink's "America's Tomorrow" newsletter says,

"Minneapolis recently became the first city in the nation to adopt a resolution promoting racial equity in employment."
We are expecting to get an update on progress made so far next Wednesday, the 24th, at the Public Safety, Civil Rights and Health committee meeting that starts at 1:30. The agenda and staff report should be posted online here soon.

I believe this will be the 7th item on the agenda: “Equity in Employment in Minneapolis and the Region: Receive and file update report on Council Resolution 2012R-456 Supporting Equity in Employment in Minneapolis and the Region.” It will likely include a staff presentation with a first draft of an equity “tool kit.” Time for the committee members to ask questions and discuss the presentation and issue will also be provided.

It would be helpful for me to get thoughts and input from any of you on this draft, as well as questions that you might want answered.
