Equity Advisory Panel Featured At Education Committee Meeting

On Tuesday December 8, 2015 the Board’s Education Committee hosted the Equity Advisory Panel to share the history of their journey towards achieving equity. The presentation opened with comments from the Executive Director of Equity Viola Burgess, and the history and current focuses of the Equity Advisory Panel were shared by Equity Advisory Panel Chair Wanda Henderson. Representing the Advisory Panel were Taminika Howze and Celeta Hickman.


A means of synthesizing representation from the Board of Directors and the Equity Advisory Panel has been formalized. Standing meetings with the EAP will be attended by select members of the Board to raise awareness of the efforts of the group, and to partner with the community in a new way. Please find the attached power point for the meeting held on 12/8/15.
