Diversity and Inclusion Policy Working Group

We're seeking expressions of interest from a diverse cross section of the community to help us develop our Diversity and Inclusion Policy.

In particular, we're seeking input from people with a direct experience of diversity, including but not limited to age, gender, ability, cultural background, socio-economic background, religion or sexual identity.

We want to ensure that all voices and experiences are meaningfully captured in the policy to reflect the diversity in our growing community and this policy will guide the plans and practices of Council to be inclusive of all diversity.

To do this, we're putting together a working group to work with us over the coming months. Please complete the following application to express your interest in joining the working group. Submissions close on 15 November 2022

The anticipated time commitment will be:

  • Wednesday 24 November - 2 hour in-person brain-storming session located at the Beechworth Council Chambers, 2 Kurrajong Way, Mayday Hills. 
  • Wednesday 30 November – 7 December – online review of draft policy and feedback to Council

Given the time of the year the final policy will not be adopted by Council until early in 2023.

We look forward to receiving your application or, if in the meantime you have any questions, please contact us.
