At their meeting on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, the City Council will receive an introduction of Dr. Patricia Patton, the City of Mill Valley’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) facilitator, and an update on the DEI Task Force formation and next steps.

In mid-June, Council unanimously supported the establishment of a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force to review and develop additional actions, investigate best practices, and make specific recommendations to Council for next steps around issues of racial equity and inclusiveness. 

The Staff Report reviews the background of DEI initiatives in the City, the process of the selection of the facilitator, and information about her professional background and Professional Services Agreement. The Staff Report reviews the DEI Task Force Design, developed by Dr. Patton. The report reviews the DEI Task Force guiding principles, the phases of the formation of the Task Force, and the project timeline.
