Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Workgroup

DEI Workgroup Charge

Formed in the January 2021, the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Workgroup is a short-term subcommittee of the Selectboard charged with evaluating potential consulting resources to assist the Board with building capacity to engage the Middlebury community in discussions regarding the local impacts of racism. The workgroup will make recommendations to the Selectboard regarding these resources, help identify community stakeholders to participate in this work, and investigate related matters, as directed by the Board.

If you have any questions about the DEI Workgroup, please contact the Town Manager's Office.
