Governor's Community Council on Inclusion and Equity
Inclusion and equity are top priorities of the Walz-Flanagan Administration. Today we face multiple crises that have exposed and exacerbated existing disparities and systemic racism. Disparities in Minnesota, including those based on race, geography, and economic status, keep our entire state from reaching its full potential. As long as inequities caused by systemic racism impact Minnesotans’ ability to be successful, we have work to do. We must dismantle systemic racism through our practices and policy choices.
Building on the work that began with Executive Order 19-01, the Governor’s Office of Inclusion established a Governor’s Community Council consisting of community members to advise, support, and collaborate with the One Minnesota Council in its ongoing work and long-range plan. The Governor’s Community Council on Inclusion and Equity will advise and collaborate with the One Minnesota Council in achieving its goals to design, create, and implement effective, inclusive, and equitable practices for the state to address disparities and inequities in our communities.
