Door County passes resolution on diversity

The Door County Board met on Tuesday and passed a resolution outlining Door County’s commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion. The resolution is part of an initiative started by the National Association of Counties titled, “County resources on diversity, equity, and inclusion.” The initiative takes aim at issues pertaining to employment opportunity, health care access, food, and housing. It was started after the controversy across the country calling for attention to discriminatory practices occurred last Summer. Door County Administrator Ken Pabich notes that shortly after the initiative was created it was brought to the board’s attention.

 

 

The Door County League of Women Voters encouraged the passing of the resolution at Tuesday’s meeting. The organization’s chair, Pat Scieszinski thanked the board for joining the growing number of state and local units of government that are taking steps toward furthering goals of diversity and inclusion. 

 


The resolution can be found below. Pabich also urged those who want to see what all the initiative entails to go to the NACO website.
