Inclusion, Diversity & Equity Advisory Board

The Inclusion, Diversity & Equity Advisory (IDEA) Board is comprised of volunteers charged with creating a vision and strategy for encouraging and supporting a more inclusive, more diverse and equitable Brighton community.  The Board’s primary scope of work is to develop an Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Action Plan for the Town and to review Town policies and procedures in a comprehensive manner as they relate to best practices in matters of inclusion, diversity and equity. With input from other residents, the Board will develop an Action Plan that will serve as a roadmap for diversity and inclusion initiatives in Brighton on an ongoing basis.
