New openings on Clackamas County ABCs: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

From: Dylan Blaylock, Clackamas County Public & Government Affairs, 503-742-5917

Clackamas County Commissioners are seeking interested residents to serve on county Advisory Board and Commissions (ABCs). These ABCs offer residents the opportunity to become very involved in specific activities and goals of Clackamas County.

New ABC openings from the past week include: 

  • Leadership for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Council: This council seeks four volunteers to serve three-year terms. The council envisions a county in which equity and inclusion are at the forefront of all decision-making, and in which all community members are actively engaged. Specifically, the council strives to examine county processes in order to recommend and facilitate changes that foster greater inclusiveness, develop leadership from diverse communities, increase community participation in county government, and promote and support diversity awareness and education.

    Council members are meant to be representative of the county's diverse populations and ideally will represent different work experiences, educational backgrounds, religious beliefs and affiliations, geographic locations, socioeconomic statuses, ethnicities, physical abilities, gender identification, sexual orientation, or other diversity. Council members meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The application deadline is Thursday, May 19 at 5 p.m. For more information, contact Equity & Community Engagement Coordinator Maria Magallon at 503-650-5693.

Individuals interested in this opportunity can apply online via a paper form that can be obtained from the Public and Government Affairs department by calling 503-655-8751 or in person at the Public Services Building at 2051 Kaen Road in Oregon City.
