Multi-City Equity Summit is coming up next week
The cities of Lake Oswego, West Linn, Wilsonville, Tigard, and Tualatin are striving to address issues around equity and inclusion.
These cities' agencies are collaborating and hosting the area's first Multi-City Equity Summit on Saturday, Oct. 19.
This is a day-long event, 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
It will focus on educating business leaders, government and police representatives, teachers and administrators, and residents, who are concerned about advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
The event will look at Oregon's history through a DEI lens (Educational); unconscious bias; how to build inclusion, well being, and trust in a community; barriers to equity: structural and cultural; micro-aggression; and implicit bias.
Keynote speaker Dr. Marvin Lynn has served in a variety of leadership roles at urban public institutions - he is a professor and dean of the Graduate School of Education at Portland State University.
