Equity Office - January 2021

The Equity Office continues to be engaged in the work of educating sectors of our communities, organizations and state agencies on the basic principles of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), implicit bias training, and steps required to operationalize equity long-term. This month the Equity Office is involved in providing intercultural development inventory (IDI) and DEI training to a number of state agencies and/or local municipalities such as MHSDA and the City of Detroit. The Equity Office is working closely with the state Equity and Inclusion Officer (EIO) in the Governor’s Office, and EIO’s throughout state government to improve DEI action steps across state agencies. In addition, the Equity Office plans to facilitate the first workgroup meeting of MDCR’s Council for Government and Education on Equity and Inclusion at the end of January, with a team focused on the recommendations in MCRC’s Education Equity Report.
