DEI webinars: Feb 10 and March 10

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion – Governor’s Commission on Racial Equity and Justice Legislative Recommendations

On June 24, 2020, Governor Kelly signed executive order 20-48 forming the Governor’s Commission on Racial Equity and Justice after the murder of George Floyd.

One hundred people joined the Commission’s webinar on Jan 6, 2022, where the final recommendations were shared for actions that would influence … “the economic, educational and health outcomes of our citizens.” The focus of the Commission in 2020 was criminal justice reform, with 60 recommendations in the Dec 1, 2020, report. In 2021, the focus was on social determinants of health.

For 2022, the first webinar focused on final legislative recommendations to realize universal equity policies. Among them: Expanding Medicaid, expanding eligibility for family planning services, and more funding for counselors in the schools.

The scope of the commission’s work was impressive and substantive.

  • On Thursday, Feb 10, at noon, the webinar will detail the Governor’s Commission on Racial Equity and Justice’s final recommendations for local changes that would influence the economic, educational, and health outcomes of our citizens.
  • On Thursday, March 10 at noon, the webinar will detail the Governor’s Commission on Racial Equity and Justice’s final recommendations for state/agency changes that would influence the economic, educational, and health outcomes of our citizens.
