The Office of Diversity has brought together the City’s Human Relations Commission and Diversity Networking Group, made up of Chandler community leaders in the business, nonprofit, education and faith-based areas, to address the following needs:
- Chandler4Change – This nonprofit focuses on non-partisan initiatives such as voter registration, participation in the 2020 Census and involvement in local government. Their activities (still being planned) will allow people to learn, engage, share and facilitate change in Chandler.
- Youth Initiatives – These individuals will work with the school district to assess how community involvement can help students with educational opportunities.
- Cultural Programs Promotion – This networking group works together to cross promote and support the numerous cultural events and programming offered by organizations in Chandler.
- Community Listening Sessions – The Human Relations Commission has launched a subcommittee to visit underrepresented populations in Chandler and report back to City Council on recommendations that will benefit the quality of life, economic opportunity and relationships with all members of our community. They also will work with Chandler4Change on this initiative.
