Making boards and committees more diverse271

As a part of our Diversity and Inclusion Plan, we’re ensuring City boards and committees reflect the diverse people who live in Guelph and their lived experiences and expertise. We recognize through the work of the Community Plan that there’s a role to play in making these positions welcoming to everyone including Black, Indigenous and racialized individuals, members of LGBTQ2+ community, people living with disabilities and other underrepresented groups.

For this reason, qualified applicants who self-identify as being a part of an equity-seeking group will be given priority during the application process.
