Racial Equity Implementation Plan
The Implementation Plan is the foundational work the City of Edina uses to engage and deepen racial equity work for all and was developed in 2018.The City of Edina is fully aware that achieving racial equity transformation is a continuous process, through learning and growing from relevant historical and current day experiences and making connections to the desired future vision of Edina. Racial equity involves all community members and City staff to strive to act and make thoughtful, intentional and informed decisions that are fair and inclusive for all community members.
The Racial Equity Implementation Plan is focused on five themes:
- Accountability and Data Collection
- City Facilities & Services
- Employee Training & Diversity
- Development & Enforcement of Policies
- Community Engagement & Communications
The Implementation Plan has work-plan items or tasks that are distributed through all City departments, which include critical analysis of current operating processes and improvement, professional development growth opportunities, deepening community engagement, transparency, and awareness through a race and equity lens.
