The CRC advises the City on how it can better incorporate diversity, equity and inclusion into all elements of city operations. The CRC has already helped guide the City in modifications that we have made to our hiring and purchasing processes. Additionally, the CRC has helped UA Police work on new ways to communicate with the community about policing in our community.
IMPROVING FROM THE INSIDE
The CRC is working to find ways to bring together community organizations and individuals together to support the diverse communities already in Upper Arlington and raise their profile in the community. The CRC helped guide the City’s participation in Black History Month and our work with Upper Arlington Public Library and UA Schools on commemorations of other cultural events.
IMPROVING FROM THE OUTSIDE
The CRC works with the City to explore ways to encourage more people and businesses from underrepresented groups to become part of the Upper Arlington community. The CRC and the City are exploring ways to better understand how to welcome new communities to UA and tell our story.
