District Looking For Committee Members To Help Fight Inequality

Posted: 2021-02-09 07:39:14 By: thebay

The District of Muskoka is inviting community members and representatives from agency partners to join an advisory committee for its Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Anti-Racism Project (IDEA).  The District launched the IDEA project last summer to promote and celebrate diversity, create opportunities for dialogue, strengthen relationships and help combat systemic racism in Muskoka.  The project explores best practices, programs, initiatives and tools that can be used to support the goal of a more inclusive Muskoka.  

 The advisory group will be made up of two committees:

  • The Champions Committee will be made up of Muskoka residents with a personal commitment to inclusion, diversity, equity and anti-racism. The majority of members will have lived experience of discrimination.
  • The Partners Committee, the smaller of the two committees, will be made up of representatives from Muskoka-based agency partners who are themselves committed to enacting the IDEA principles in their own organizations, as well as the community.

The District says expression of interest forms can be found at . 

The deadline is February 19th  at 12:00 Noon.
