Equity Indicators Project: The City of Fort Collins seeks feedback from community members on what measures it should track in the equity/diversity/inclusion space.
Along with partner the CUNY Institute for State and Local Governance, the city is gathering community input to select equity indicators to track in a dashboard for increased accountability and resource alignment.
Community members can participate in a survey and/or a focus group. The SURVEY CLOSES November 1 and is available in four languages.
Focus groups are meeting this week and next week through October 29.
Check out OurCity for more information and access to the survey links.
This is a much-needed initiative to help advance equity and inclusion in Fort Collins.
Take the survey and volunteer for a focus group today!
