Register for WCA Regional Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Meetings in August

The Wisconsin Counties Association, along with Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach and Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Marcelia Nicholson, invite all members of the county family to join us for regional discussions on diversity, equity and inclusion.

These regional meetings will serve as the “kick off” to what we hope will be ongoing discussions at the regional level on county DEI efforts. County elected officials, county appointed officials, as well as all county employees are welcome to join these discussions designed to share information on local DEI efforts, as well as guide counties that choose to engage in DEI efforts in their local communities.

Following the August 2022 series of DEI regional meetings, pre-selected leaders from each of WCA’s seven regions will be tasked with ensuring that the discussions continue on a regional basis into the future.

Several counties have expressed interest in learning more about DEI efforts at the county level. At the 2020 and 2021 WCA annual business meetings, county voting delegates adopted a series of resolutions related to diversity, equity and inclusion.

The WCA board of directors has adopted several positions as well on diversity, equity and inclusion. Our August 2022 DEI regional meetings are intended to begin the process of information sharing/gathering among counties with a shared interest in diversity, equity and inclusion.
