What Local Government Leaders Should Know about Equity and Inclusion According To Residents
In this year of a pandemic, mass unemployment, and riots calling for police reform, racial inequities have become increasingly magnified. But what can local government leaders do to better understand how inclusive their community is? And, how can they partner with underrepresented residents to shape policies that better serve all?
Polco created a Community Equity and Inclusion survey to assist local governments in elevating the voices of diverse community members.
Polco Sr. VP of Innovation Michelle Kobayashi and Waunakee, Wisconsin Village Administrator Todd Schmidt have firsthand experience with how to use surveys to increase a sense of belonging for all. They say survey data can help guide leaders in making more inclusive decisions.
