Inclusivity Board

Westminster City Council in early 2015 formed an Inclusivity Task Force to help guide the city as it examined a potential permanent board or commission that would consider issues of inclusivity, diversity and other issues in our community. In October, the Inclusivity Task Force provided recommendations to City Council on the formation of an Inclusivity Board.  On Nov. 9, 2015, City Council unanimously approved the formation of the Westminster Inclusivity Board. City Council recruited and appointed board members in spring 2016 and the first Inclusivity Board meeting was held in June 2016.

The Inclusivity Board envisions a diverse community where everyone understands the city belongs to them and their participation matters. The mission of the Board is to work with City Council to advocate for all voices within our community and to ensure everyone is treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
