**Call for task force members closed, May 22, 2022**
In March 2022, the City of Oregon City hired MGT, a national consulting and technology services company, to help the City ensure its practices and policies create an inclusive and equitable environment for every member of the community. In partnership with city leaders, MGT will analyze existing systems, policies, programs, processes, and staff readiness to provide a plan for the City to integrate Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) throughout their operations. Community engagement is imperative to the successful implementation of the DEI plan, a community Task Force will be assembled to launch the program and participation is strongly encouraged.
MGT will work closely with the City to create an inclusive and equitable environment for all participants. The Community DEI Task Force will be a diverse group of Oregon City residents and other key stakeholders who will:
- Participate in a series of meetings to provide insight regarding the state of equity across the City
- Provide feedback on MGT’s DEI Assessment of Oregon City
- Provide recommendations on potential initiatives to include in the City’s DEI Action Plan
The city encourages community members to submit their application to join the Task Force here no later than May 22, 2022. Visit this page for more information about the Task Force. City Commissioner and President, Denyse McGriff says, “We are calling on community members from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, abilities, and life experiences to join the City’s DEI task force. If you have interest in making our city more diverse and inclusive, we need your voice. This group, working with MGT, will set the groundwork and help navigate efforts the city will implement through important work we can enact today and in future for a brighter Oregon City.”
MGT’s DEI practice tackles social injustice by examining disproportionality in community and organizational systems, identifying racial, gender, and other demographic disparities, and analyzing the causes to develop tailored programs and policies that lead to authentic, meaningful, and sustained change.
