Mayor's Forum on Diversity

The Mayor’s Forum on Diversity was formed in 1995 to create an open public setting for matters of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging to be discussed; and for initiatives to be identified and implemented. The ever-evolving work of the forum is guided by its mission and vision for Summit.

The Mayor’s Forum on Diversity has a vision for Summit as a welcoming place where everyone can belong. As a diverse and inclusive community, we value kindness, empathy, equity, and equality, respecting and cherishing the unique contributions we all make.

Together, we are constantly evolving, breaking down barriers, and building a united community where diversity is respected and cherished.
