Metro’s Racial Equity Diversity and Inclusion Action PlanOrganizations
Earlier this month Metro’s Parks and Nature Department approved its Racial Equity Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan and posted it to Metro’s website.
Just days later, the plan was in action. With the help of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team and the Center for Diversity and the Environment, the Parks and Nature Department hosted an all-day equity training for more than 60 people from around the region on March 11. Attendees represented environmental, community-based and culturally specific organizations, and the training was built specifically for applicants of Metro’s Nature in Neighborhood grant program.
