Council to make anti-discrimination a priority
On July 6, the City of Claremont posted the city council “added a new priority for the 2022-24 budget focused on developing anti-racist, anti-discrimination policies and plans to achieve community and organizational diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
In alignment with the new budget priority, request for proposals were made available on Monday, July 11 for a diversity, equity, and inclusion evaluation. The DEI evaluation will “specifically look at policies, programs, and practices that directly or indirectly impact city staff and residents about their race, ethnicity, gender, national origin, color, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or other socio-culturally significant factors.
The high-level deliverables will include the development of findings and recommendations to be included in a final report and presentation to the community and the city council,” according to the city.
The city is also looking for additional consulting services to advise the team on the DEI work. Qualified persons, firms, or organizations are encouraged to submit a proposal.
For questions about the RFP or additional information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (909) 399-5460.
