Equity Advisory Committee

The Equity Advisory Committee (EAC) works on equity issues within the CCRPC and Chittenden County communities, works to ensure that the policies, procedures and projects of the CCRPC are equitable and improve outcomes for all, and ensures that associated recommendations are brought before the Board. The Equity Advisory Committee currently meets intermittently. A regular schedule will be outlined here as soon as one is determined.

BACKGROUND

Prior to establishing the current Equity Advisory Committee, the CCRPC Equity Leadership Team (ELT) was established in April 2021 as the result of the CCRPC hiring a consultant, The Creative Discourse Group, to address racial equity within its organization. ELT meeting materials and membership information can be found below.
