Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee October 2021


The Cumberland County Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Advisory Committee held its first meeting on Sept. 11 at the Department of Social Services. The committee’s purpose is to advise and guide County government to ensure integration of diversity, equity and inclusion with the County’s mission, operations, strategies and business objectives. 

Twenty-two employees were selected to serve on the committee. DSS Director Brenda Jackson and Finance Director Vicki Evans, the County’s General Managers, are serving as the co-conveners. Cheribeth Thomas, Public Information Office, is serving as the Administrative Support to the Advisory Committee.

 
The DEI Advisory Committee will review Cumberland County Government programs, policies and initiatives and make recommendations to County Management and the Board of County Commissioners in support of diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace. They will also develop a strategic plan focused on advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in the areas of policy, training, staff recruitment and retention, internal operations and community outreach/engagement.
