DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Initiatives

The Department on Aging has an internal Equity Advisory Council made up of 23 employees. The Council meets bimonthly, and three subcommittees of the Council meet monthly as well to work on addressing three specific goals. The goals are:

  • Ensuring that the programs administered and monitored by the Department reflect the values of racial equity, cultural competency, and diversity;

  • Increasing staff diversity; and

  • Developing a work culture that promotes racial equity and diversity.
